Titanium Reduction

Chemical Formula: Ti, TiO2, TiCl4
Present as:

Titanium is a chemical element with symbol Ti and atomic number 22. It is a lustrous transition metal with a silver color, low density and high strength. It is highly resistant to corrosion in sea water, aqua regia, and chlorine.
Titanium was discovered in Cornwall, Great Britain, by William Gregor in 1791 and named by Martin Heinrich Klaproth for the Titans of Greek mythology. The element occurs within a number of mineral deposits, principally rutile and ilmenite, which are widely distributed in the Earth’s crust and lithosphere, and it is found in almost all living things, rocks, water bodies, and soils. The metal is extracted from its principal mineral ores by the Kroll and Hunter processes.
The most common compound, titanium dioxide, is a popular photocatalyst and is used in the manufacture of white pigments (“Titanium White”). Other compounds include titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4), a component of smoke screens and catalysts; and titanium trichloride (TiCl3), which is used as a catalyst in the production of polypropylene.

Titanium dioxide is an insoluble compound used in paint pigments and in water treatment in granular form as an adsorbent for arsenic.

Titanium chloride is a highly reactive liquid used as an intermediate in the production of titanium metal.
