titanium tetrachloride

[tī′tā·nē·əm ¦te·trə′klȯr‚īd]
(inorganic chemistry)
TiCl4 A colorless, toxic liquid soluble in water, fumes when exposed to moist air, boils at 136°C; used to make titanium and titanium salts, as a dye mordant and polymerization catalyst, and in smoke screens and pigments. Also known as titanic chloride.

Tetra-n-butyl titanate is commercially produced by the reaction of titanium tetrachloride & butanol.
They were precipitated solids of titanium tetrachloride without supports, activated by aluminum trichloride with diethyl aluminum chloride.
Besides the fields mentioned above, titanium complexes, especially titanium dioxide, are considered to be versatile metal oxides due to their wide range of applications [7-13], and high purity titanium tetrachloride is strongly required for the synthesis of titanium dioxide.
Titanium(IV) isopropoxide 97%, titanium tetrachloride, and diethoxyl dimethylsilane were purchased from Sigma Aldrich, Gauteng, South Africa, while Ni[Cl.sub.2] x 6[H.sub.2]O, Fe[Cl.sub.3] x 6[H.sub.2]O, potassium dichromate salt, NaOH, HCl, and absolute ethanol (HPLC grade) were purchased from Merck Chemicals Ltd., South Africa.
About 37.54 mL of absolute ethanol was added dropwise to 12.46 mL of ice cold titanium tetrachloride solution in conical flask with vigorous stirring to form titanium ethoxide.
5mL titanium tetrachloride was added to 50 mL 2.0 mol/L HCl, stirred until a uniform mixing was achieved.
Among specific topics are the electro-catalytic oxidation of oxalic acid using multi-electrolytic modified glassy carbon electrodes, a model of the titanium tetrachloride gas phase oxidation process, the continuous casting of a multi-crystalline silicon billet, the formation process of titanium coatings in mechanical coating with different rotation speed, and a stiffness compensation control method in twin roll strip casting ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
The rutile titanium is mixed with coke from petrochemical plants and heated to 1000[degrees]C, at which point chloride is added to generate gaseous titanium tetrachloride (Ti[Cl.sub.4]).
The new plant will be built adjacent to Cristal's titanium dioxide plant which will supply titanium tetrachloride in an operation that combines Cristal's on-site assets with Toyo's advanced production technology.
As it follows from Figure 7 the repeated sequential exposures with titanium tetrachloride and methane, respectively, lead to the growth of amorphous nanolayer of titanium-carbon groups.
