$Bi_2VO_{5.5} (Bi_4V_2O_{11}) $which is the vanadium analog of the first member of the Aurivillius family of oxides of the general formula $Bi_2A_{n-1}B_nO_{3n+3}$ has been prepared and characterized. The vanadate has the expected layered structure and is ferroelectric with a Curie temperature 720 K. While we have not been able to synthesize the vanadium analog of the$ n = 2$ member of the Aurivillius family, we have examined the structure and properties of a vanadate of the composition Bi2V3O9.
