The effect of transition element binary solid solution additions upon the recrystallization temperature of V was investigated. Cr, Fe, Co, Ni, Mo, Ru, Rh, Os and Ir lower the recrystallization temperature, while Ti, Mn, Zr, Cb, Pd, Hf, Ta, W, Re and Pt raise it. The majority of elements have their greatest effect in less than 0.15 atomic percent. Both the rate of change of recrystallization temperature with ATOMIC PERCENT SOLUTE AND THE LIMIT OF INITIAL LINEARITY ARE FOUND TO CORRELATE WITH THE FREE ATOM GROUND STATE OUTER ELECTRON CONFIGURATION OF THE SOLUTE ELEMENT.
