Titanium Oxides


the compounds of titanium and oxygen TiO, Ti2O3, and TiO2. In addition, a series of intermediate oxides are known to exist within the range of compositions TiO2-Ti2O3. The titanium oxide most widely distributed and of greatest commercial importance is titanium dioxide, TiO2, which occurs naturally as the minerals rutile, anatase, and brookite. In pure form, TiO2 is a white powder with a melting point of 1830°–1850°C. Technical-grade TiOz is obtained from rutile and from complex titaniferous iron ores of the ilmenite type by the sulfuric-acid method, by the oxidation of TiCl4 in a plasma jet of oxygen at 1500°–2000°K, or by the combustion of TiCl4 in oxygen.

Titanium oxide ores serve as raw materials in the production of metallic titanium. TiO2 is widely used in the manufacture of high-quality white paints (titanium white). It also serves as a pigment and filler in the rubber industry, in metallurgy, and in the production of plastics, synthetic fibers, paper, and leather.

An element used in aerospace, titanium and titanium oxides had an import value of $84.9 million in 2017, while there was an additional $89.1 million of titanium dioxide pigment imports.
Antibacterial activity of Fe doped titanium oxides synthesized in various solvents: The antibacterial activity of Fe doped titanium oxides which were synthesized in various solvents such as acetonitrile, n-hexane and isopropyl alcohol was investigated against all strains S.
Titanium oxides are widely reported in literature, when titanium oxides can exist in various stoichiometry and at different binding energies (BE) of Ti 2p3/2 for TiO2 at 459.1 eV, Ti3O5 at 457.9 eV, Ti2O3 at 456.7 eV, TiO at 455.1 eV, and last metal Ti at 453.9 [15, 16].
Titanium oxides have good ionic and insulating properties that increase adhesion with the metallic substrate and reduce adverse reactions into the human body (Leyens & Peters, 2003; Roessler et al., 2002).
Figure 4(a) shows that the binding energy of the Ti [2p.sup.3/2] peak from 458.8 eV as-deposited, to 457.8 eV, 400[degrees]C annealed, corresponds to a transition from [Ti.sup.4+] to [Ti.sub.3+]; this indicates that titanium oxides lost oxygen, exhibiting the properties of the lower suboxides.

It should be noted that the size, shape, chemical composition, and distribution of inclusions containing titanium oxides have an evident effect on microstructure and properties of steel production.
The interstratified distribution of titanium oxides can act as a solid lubricant during the wear test.
