It is a titanium element that reacts with oxygen whose chemical formula is TiO2. The most important application of this compound is solar cells. Nano-technological paints are characterized by titanium dioxide. Prevents UVA and UVB rays. It is also a valuable mine. white is known as titanium in the industry, used almost everywhere (paper, plastic, paint, chewing gum, etc.).
Production and Reactions
It is not pure in nature and is produced from iron titanium dioxide (Fe3TiO3) ores.
The crude titanium dioxide can be obtained by purification of titanium tetrachloride.
Next to white, a very nice red color similar to arterial blood can be obtained as a result of different crystallization.
E171 is a food colorant known for its food additive code.
It appears - used for coating along with silicon dioxide in close-wavelength wavelengths.
trileptal, an antiepileptic drug in the pharmaceutical industry, is used as an adjuvant.
Titanium dioxide is used in cosmetics as a thickening, whitening, lubricating and sunscreen. It is used as a skin protector especially in sunscreen creams.
Because of the photocatalytic properties of this chemical, it absorbs the sun and dirt and is used in most sectors for hygiene.
In this sector, it is used as a tooth whitener, which is suggested to clean the colored layer of tooth in the contents of toothpastes.
