When tetrabutyl titanate is hydrolyzed at a pH value of 7.
However, when the temperature is elevated to 40[degrees]C, the hydrolysis reaction of tetrabutyl titanate is promoted by the outer temperature, and the elevated temperature quickens the formation of [TiO.
2]-coated kaolin compound pigments is confirmed with the optimum parameters as follows: a tetrabutyl titanate dosage of 6 mL/20 g kaolin, a slurry concentration of 11.
It can be explained that it is inadequate to hydrolyze tetrabutyl titanate at a pH value of 1.
