Hi Gonçalo

If you do not find the parameters for vanadium, you could try to develop 
them using experimental physical chemistry properties of the ion and MD 
In the following reference you can find a suitable method to develop 
them that worked for me in the development of Pb and Cd ion parameters:

Parameters for Liquid Simulations", J. Phys. Chem. B 2007, 111, 2219-2224
