What happens when titanium is mixed with water


Titanium only reacts with water after destroying its protective titanium oxide surface layer. It is, therefore, water-insoluble. Titanium compounds generally are not very water-soluble. Examples include titanium carbide and titanium oxide. Titanium readily reacts with oxygen at 1,200 °C (2,190 °F) in air and at 610 °C (1,130 °F) in pure oxygen, forming titanium dioxide. Titanium is one of the few elements that burn in pure nitrogen gas, reacting at 800 °C (1,470 °F) to form titanium nitride, which causes embrittlement. It depends on the alloy, but 7075-T6 aluminium has nearly double the strength-to-weight of grade 2 titanium. Titanium uses nearly four times the embodied carbon (CO2 emitted during manufacturing, transporting and constructing materials) and more than three times the embodied energy of aluminium. Diamonds remain the most scratch-resistant material known to humanity. Metals like Titanium are far less scratch-resistant, and even extremely hard ceramics or tungsten carbide cannot compete with diamonds in hardness or scratch resistance. Titanium certainly is not stronger and harder than diamonds. Diamonds' strength ranges around 60GPa whereas Titanium can be as low as. 434 GPA or Gigapascals.

On the other hand, Diamonds can easily outrank Titanium in the scale of hardness; it ranges about 98.07 Rockwell C, whereas, Titanium ranges around 36 Rockwell C. In terms of strength, Inconel is the stronger of the two metals. This is because Inconel contains chromium, which increases its strength. Titanium, on the other hand, does not contain chromium.
