About Titanium & Its Properties

Titans: In Greek mythology, they were a race of godlike giants who ruled Earth before the coming of the Olympians.

Titanium, named for the Titans is an element in the periodic table. Its atomic number is 22, which means that there are 22 protons in its nucleus.

Its existence was discovered by British artist, musician, clergyman, and mineralogist William Gregor in the Manaccan Valley in Cornwall in 1791. He named the substance manaccanite. Shortly thereafter, Austrian mineralogist Franz Joseph Muller found a similar substance. In 1795, German chemist Martin Heinrich Klaproth also discovered its existence. Klaproth confirmed its existence as an element and named it titanium. That name stuck.

What Gregor and Muller discovered was actually 'ilmenite', or Ferric titanium trioxide. Klaproth discovered 'rutile', or titanium dioxide a much purer ore.

Although it is the ninth most abundant element in nature, titanium has always been difficult to extract from its source. In fact, it was not until 1910 when American chemist Matthew Hunter succeeded in preparing pure metallic titanium using a process that now bears his name. Until William Kroll developed a more economic method in 1940, Hunter's was the system of choice.

Titanium is the hardest natural metal in the world being three times as strong as steel and yet it is very lightweight because of its low density. It has a silver/gray/white color and is naturally somewhat lustrous. It has a very high melting point and yet is quite ductile.

It is extremely resistant to corrosion. Titanium is not water-soluble and is able to withstand acids, gases (including chlorine), sunlight, and even salt solutions such as human sweat.
