Titanium electroplating


Is it possible to electroplate titanium in a oxygen free, aprotic solvent? Or even in a molten titanium salt ?

Is it possible people can search and research before asking.

That first link doesn't seem to work. [Edit: spoke too soon; there seems to have been a temporary glitch]

jhonn: what are you looking to do? Electroplate titanium onto a substrate or electroplate something onto a titanium substrate (see last link)?

I want to electroplate titanium onto a substrate, because of its corrosion resistance.

Exactly, what kind of substrate?

Stainless steel. But if this is possible with other metals, or any other kind of material, i still would like to know.

Is this what you're talking about? Google is your friend.

This process involves high temperatures, and takes 10 h. I was looking for something simpler.

I hate to sound like an echo, but UTFSE. You need to learn your own research skills.


Last spoon from me. Try searching google patents.

At the hobbyist level, your only hope is probably something involving Ti (III) because at least it's fairly easy to produce in watery solution and maybe can be deposited as metal in a way somewhat analogous to electro-galvanisation and other forms of electro-plating. Solutions of Ti (III) salts can be prepared by direct dissolution of Ti metal (powder, for instance) in strong HCl or by reduction of TiOSO4 solutions with Zn, Fe or Al.

Hyfalcon's last link seems to be along those lines.
