Title: A METHOD OF PRODUCING TITANIUM FROM TITANIUM OXIDES THROUGH MAGNESIUM VAPOUR REDUCTION
Abstract:
Disclosed herein is a novel approach to the chemical synthesis of titanium metal from a titanium oxide source material. In the approach described herein, a titanium oxide source is reacted with Mg vapour to extract a pure Ti metal. The method disclosed herein is more scalable, cheaper, faster, and safer than prior art methods.
