n. Symbol Ti
A strong, low-density, highly corrosion-resistant, lustrous white metallic element that occurs widely in igneous rocks and is used to alloy aircraft metals for low weight, strength, and high-temperature stability. Atomic number 22; atomic weight 47.87; melting point 1,668°C; boiling point 3,287°C; specific gravity 4.51; valence 2, 3, 4. See Periodic Table.
[From Latin Tītān, Titan; see Titan.]
(Elements & Compounds) a strong malleable white metallic element, which is very corrosion-resistant and occurs in rutile and ilmenite. It is used in the manufacture of strong lightweight alloys, esp aircraft parts. Symbol: Ti; atomic no: 22; atomic wt: 47.88; valency: 2, 3, or 4; relative density: 4.54; melting pt: 1670±10°C; boiling pt: 3289°C
[C18: New Latin; see Titan, -ium]
ti•ta•ni•um(taɪˈteɪ ni əm)
