Chemistry is a branch of science that deals with an array of elements, both naturally occurring and synthesized. So far, 94 naturally occurring elements have been identified. There is a specific basis of classification of elements in the chemistry which is depicted in the form of Periodic Table. Titanium (symbol: Ti) is one of the 94 naturally occurring elements which is placed in column 4 and row 4 of the Periodic Table based on its category of D-Block elements and configuration 4s3d 4p.
Discovery of titanium
The Earth is a great resource of natural treasure but many of its treasures were not explored after existence of humans on the earth. The natural elements were discovered from time to time. Titanium was discovered in 1791 by the clergyman and amateur geologist, William Gregor. This element had a great potential to put in several applications which was not known at the time of its discovery.
Exploration of advantages of titanium use
Modern world had explored great advantages of this element which is a metal. This metal can be molded in various forms. Titanium tubing and titanium piping are most common forms of this metal for real-world applications. The vast uses of titanium include its applications in industrial, medical, manufacturing, aerospace, and military sectors. The main reason for its vast applications is its low density and high strength compared to any other metal. Though, this metal may be costlier, yet its worth is more for various applications.
Titanium is a superior metal
Titaniumhas a great value for its unique properties.This metal is both malleable and ductile and can easily be molded in any form or shape. One of its significant properties is anti-corrosiveness. For instance, Ti tube can be easily molded from raw metal and its resistance to corrosiveness allows any liquid to pass through the tube without damaging the metal surface. Some unique characteristics we find in titanium are not available in other metals that are commonly used. Titanium is, thus, superior from every perspective.
