Best Answer

The ore rutile (impure titanium(IV) oxide) is heated with chlorine and coke at a temperature of about 900°C. Then the Titanium chloride is reduced using Magnesium and distilled to get rid of the Magnesium chloride (Magnesium atoms displaced titanium atoms). Then you get titanium.

How is titanium formed?

Like all heavier elements, titanium was formed in a star and was included in the Earth when it formed from interstellar dust.

Sodium or magnesium is used to displace the titanium metal.
