Recommendation from the Scientific Committee for Occupational Exposure Limits for vanadium pentoxide January 5 Vanadium is mainly absorbed via the lungs. Absorption via the digestive tract is limited, while cutaneous absorption seems to be of no significance in occupational exposure. Absorbed vanadium is transported mainly in the plasma.
