The varied oxidation state and layered structure are two importance features of vanadium pentoxide which makes it more special. Here, vanadium pentoxide nanostructure has been synthesized by a surfactant free and ecofriendly method using ammonium vanadate as a precursor salt. Synthesized nanostructure were characterized using X-ray diffraction method (XRD), Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analysis (EDAX), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and UV-Visible spectroscopy to study its structural, compositional, morphology, vibrational modes and optical behavior. XRD and FTIR confirm the orthorhombic phase of the vanadium pentoxide with a layered structure of irregular plates as observed from the SEM micrograph. Moreover, the band gap of material is 2.13 eV as evaluated from UV-Visible data.
