Description of key information

Additional information

Granulometry (Regius, 2012)

Vanadium dioxide has a median particle size D50 = 129 µm and following particle size distribution:

D10 = 9 µm

D50 = 129 µm

D90 = 973 µm

Dustiness (Parr & Grewe, 2012)

Total Dustiness (airborne fraction): 359.86 mg/g (DMT)

Mass median aerodynamic diameters (mono-modal distribution) of airborne fraction: MMAD = 22.8 µm (distribution fitted to cascade impactor data).

Geometric standard deviation of MMAD: GSD = 1.5

Fractional deposition in human respiratory tract (MPPD model, based on calculated MMAD):

Head (ET): 60.48%

Tracheobronchial (TB): 0.11%

Pulmonary (PU): 0.02%
