Titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4) is an inorganic chemical compound that belongs to the group of titanium halides. In general, pure titanium tetrachloride is a colorless, transparent, dense liquid that is inherently non-conductive.
Industrially, titanium tetrachloride is produced by various processes such as the Chloride process, thermal reduction of magnesium and sodium reduction, among others. Among these processes, the chloride process is preferred mainly because of low production cost and high process yield. In this process, titanium oxides, i. H. Ilmenite reduced with charcoal and chlorine gas.
The product formed is further distilled to produce pure titanium tetrachloride, which is soluble in water and inorganic solvents. In general, titanium tetrachloride is an important raw material involved in the production of titanium metal, titanium sponge, titanium dioxide, and titanium chloride, among others.
