The behavior of vanadium in an existing production chain (with the study of conversion intermediate products) is studied using a set of modern analytical methods (X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray fluorescence analysis). The possibility of using a set of contemporary methods to predict the degree of vanadium extraction is demonstrated.
