Connecting Chemistry


Atomic symbol: Ti
Atomic number: 22
Atomic mass: 47.88

Appearance: Silvery gray-white solid at 25°C

Group: 4
Period: 4
Series: Transition metals
Block: d

High strength-to-weight ratio.

Acts as a superconductor at very low temperatures.

Fun Fact! Because titanium is highly corrosion resistant, it could be used for the long-term storage of nuclear waste; titanium containers may be effective and safe for up to 100,000 years.
