This paper is a detailed look at the chemical element, titanium.
This paper examines all things related to the atomic element titanium. The author describes its properties, color, appearance, from where it can be mined and the discovery of the element. The paper also discusses commercial extraction and the various uses for titanium.
“Titanium is not commonly used because it is among the most difficult of all metals to obtain in pure form. It has high reactivity with carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen at high temperatures, which means that it cannot be extracted from its ores using the types of process commonly used for other metals. Although titanium compounds have been known since 1795, it was not until 1910 that the New Zealand-born metallurgist Matthew Hunter, working in the United States, produced the first pure sample of the metal.”
