The effect of tetrabutyl titanate dosages on whiteness and oil absorption value is shown in Figs.
However, when the slurry concentration is further increased, it is too high to stir evenly, and the hydrolysis product of tetrabutyl titanate cannot (or not totally) coat on the surface of slurry.
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.
