Why is titanium not extracted by heating rutile with carbon?
Titanium is more reactive than Titanium.
Like all heavier elements, titanium was formed in a star and was included in the Earth when it formed from interstellar dust. In case you mean how is it manufactured, it is usually found on Earth as its oxide, in the ore rutile. It is extracted by conversion to titanium chloride which is then purified. Sodium or magnesium is used to displace the titanium metal.
No. Titanium is not a mineral, it is a metal that can be smelted from such minerals as rutile and ilmenite. Titanium is not the strongest metal, either. The reason that it is named "titanium" is that it has a very high ratio of strength to density: it is about as strong as some steels but 45% lighter.
comes from a fine sand in Australia called rutile=============================================== Titanium are rare in the earth's crust and is the seventh in the abundance(there is 0.42% in the crust). For the smelting of titanium minerals are mainly FeTiO3, TiO2, and perovskite, etc.. The treated ore to be volatile titanium tetrachloride, and then restore the obtained titanium magnesium.

Most of the world's titanium is mined as titanium dioxide (in rutile) in mines located in southwest Africa, Russia, Kazakhstan, Australia, and the US states of Virginia and Kentucky. In India, titanium metal extraction is developed indigenously by DRDO and commercial production is started at Kerala Minerals and Metals Limited.
Titanium is not found in nature. Extracting the metal is a chemical process, not a separation. Titanium ore such as rutile is crushed and heated with chlorine and coke (carbon). TiO2 + 2Cl2 + 2C = TiCl4 + 2CO The TiCl4 is then reduced by either sodium or magnesium TiCl4 + 4Na = Ti + 4NaCl Remember the numbers after the element symbols must be subscripts. The process is difficult and dangerous and needs a…
I assume that the titanium powder you are talking about is when it is in its natural form; called rutile. It is then sent through a process where it is combined with chlorine to form TiCl4. Then, Mag. is used to isolate the titanium to one side of a cell, leaving a hard, moon rock like crust. It is then chopped down and melted to the customers specs.
Titanium is corrosion resistant, very strong and has a high melting point. It has a relatively low density (about 60% that of iron). It is also the tenth most commonly occurring element in the Earth's crust. That all means that titanium should be a really important metal for all sorts of engineering applications. In fact, it is very expensive and only used for rather specialised purposes. Titanium is used, for example: in the aerospace industry…
Titanium is found as an ore in several locations, from Africa to India, to Canada, in deposits of the ores rutile and anatase (titanium dioxide), and ilmenite (iron titanium dioxide). Australia, South Africa, Canada, Norway, China, India, and the Ukraine all have commercial titanium mines, and Vietnam is developing a refining capacity as well. Senegal, Cote d'Ivoire, Mozambique, and Madagascar are also mining titanium, and are expected to become leading producers within a few years.almost…
There are many many pigments, and many variations of chemical composition. We must also distinguish between the types of paint in question (watercolors, acrylics or oils, dyes, etc). Here are some common acrylic pigments: Violets and purples can be Quinacridone, Cobalt, Dioxazine, Manganese, Mars (iron oxide), Permanent (Inanthadon/Quinacridone), Ultramarine (Polyulfide of Sodium-Alumino-Silicate), Medium Violet (Titanium Dioxide Rutile/Quinacridone), Light Violet (Carbzole Dioxazine/Titanium Dioxide Rutile/Quinacridone).
