A better understanding of magnetic interactions, charge distribution, and redox properties of vanadium oxide nanotubes (VONTs) is necessary for accurate structure and mechanism of formation determination. Magnetic properties have been determined for pristine and lithiated VONTs and for the VONTs arranged in nanourchin morphology. Presence of paramagnetic V4+ ions and V4+ ions coupled in magnetic dimers is found, and their amounts are estimated. Both lithiation and change of morphology to nanourchin destroy the spin-gap behavior, which indicate changes in charge distribution. No ferromagnetic response is observed in lithiated VONTs. Magnetic properties of vanadium oxide nanorods with δ-V4O10 structure are also characterized.
