Titanium di oxide


Can someone tell me what will hapen when some H2O2 is added to titanium di oxide with potassium parmanganate?

The permanganate will oxidise the peroxide and the TiO2 will sit there doing nothing.

Is this a homework question?



One shouldn't accept or resort to the mutilation of science to appease the mentally impaired.

I don't know about the homework on this one. It's definatly a possibility. I would think that he would use the nomenclature direct from the problem if it was. If he had said Titanium (IV) Oxide, I'd say it was HW all the way. Thats the way it was always written in our books. The teacher would also have a bit of a tizzy if we used molecular naming for ionic compounds.

Perhaps his teacher is not as strict. Perhaps he just wants to know what happens when he mixes random chemicals from the garage.

On the contrary Titanium Dioxide is not a garage substance but is actually used in the medical field as joints for people with arthiritis and as a filler in the pharmaceutical industry.
In Sweden it is used in benzodiazepines,Percocet,Percodan and phenylbenzodiazepines.

Its used in paint, plastics, and in ceramics too, what's your point? I don't know about you, but I happen to have it in my garage as the walls are painted. I also have some in there at a higher purity for other reasons.

Yes! I found the answer at last. But my ques was containing some error.
There would be H2SO4 in the place of KMNO4.
The answer is
TiO2 + H2SO4 = TiOSO4(Titanial sulphate) + H2O
TiOSO4 + H2SO4 = Ti(SO4)2 + H2O
Ti(SO4)2 + H2O2 = H2[TiO2(SO4)2](Orange red)
It mainly used to isolate(prove) H2O2.

Titanium Dioxide


I have about a tonne of TiO2 at work - we use it as a white pigment in paint.

- This is probably a REALLY stupid question, but, is it possible to get titaniun metal from rutile TiO2?? What would reduce the Ti?

The industrial method is chlorination of TiO2 or FeTiO3 (illmenite) with charcoal, distilling the TiCl4 and reducing with Mg metal to sponge (Kroll method). To melt into billet you'll need at least an inert atmosphere because titanium literally burns with 99% of what's in the atmosphere, not to mention the crucible (sintered or fused MgO might be suitable, with CaF2 flux). Indutry uses either an inert or vacuum arc furnace and water-cooled copper crucible.

TiCl4 is a starting meterial to many Ti(IV) complexes that can be used as catalysts in various reactions (naming a few):
- Z.N olefine polymerization
- olefine oligomerization or isomerization
- hydroamination
- Ti's oxophilicity can be harnesed in a vitig like C=O --> C=C reactions.
most of those complexes are air\H2O sensetive so their syn. and usage must be done under inert conditions.
