Vanadium is found to exhibit a range of coordination numbers (CN) from 10 to 17 in its binary alloys with group III B and IV B elements. The polyhedra around V are characterized and a description in terms of symbols is offered. The structures of the binary alloys considered are described in terms of polyhedral packing. It is found that there are two types: a three-dimensional distribution of discrete polyhedra sharing corners, edges or faces and a layer-like distribution.
