Vanadium(V) oxide (V2O5), is also commonly known as vanadium pentoxide. That's V (subscript 2) O (subscript 5).

V2O5. It's commonly called "vanadium pentoxide." It's used as a catalyst in chemical reactions. For instance, it's commonly used (as a film on a ceramic substrate) as the catalyst to convert SO2 to SO3, in the manufacture of H2SO4.

Vanadium has 4 valence states. +2,+3,-+4,+5.
Have always seen V2O5, but VO, V2O3, VO2 also seem possible.
