4  Symbol: Ti  Element Classification: Metal  Atomic Number: 22  Atomic Weight: 47.88 AMU  Discovered by William Gregor 1791 (England)  Melting Point: 1659.85 o C  Boiling Point: 3286.85 o C  Electron Configuration: [Ar] 4s 2 3d

5  Pure Titanium is a lustrous white metal with low density and high strength.  Titanium is as strong as steel, but it is 45% lighter.  Titanium is 60% heavier than aluminum, but it is twice as strong.  Titanium is the only element that burns in nitrogen.

6  Titanium is important for alloying with aluminum, molybdenum, iron, manganese, etc.  Construction materials or chemical reactors.  Titanium Dioxide is the pigment used in (most) paint.  There is an idea of using Titanium Dioxide for purification of water, due to the reaction of the compound when it comes in contact with light.  Bombardment with deuterons can render titanium very radioactive, it will emit positions and hard gamma rays.  A typical lipstick contains 10% titanium.

7  Titanium is difficult to find and create.  Titanium is found in the sun and in meteorites.  Rocks from the Apollo 17 mission to the moon contained up to 12.1% TiO 2 – Titanium Dioxide.  Titanium is present in the ash of coal, in plants, and in the human body.  Titanium could be produced commercially by reducing titanium tetrachloride with magnesium.

8  The name ‘Titanium’ is based on the name of ‘Titans’ which in Greek beliefs meant first sons of the Earth.  The price of titanium metal powder (99.95%) is about $100/lb.  Titanium has low toxicity.

9  “Properties and Uses of Titanium.” Titanium. 24 April 2010  “Titanium.” Titanium – Ti. 24 April 2010.  Helmenstine, Anne Marie. “Chemical and Physical Properties” Titanium  “Periodic Table of Videos – Titanium”. July 16, 2008. Online Video Clip. YouTube. Accessed on 22 April, 2010.
