Titanium tetrachloride is a colorless to pale yellow liquid that has fumes with a strong odor. If it comes in contact with water, it rapidly forms hydrochloric acid, as well as titanium compounds.
Titanium tetrachloride is not found naturally in the environment and is made from minerals that contain titanium. It is used to make titanium metal and other titanium-containing compounds, such as titanium dioxide, which is used as a white pigment in paints and other products and to produce other chemicals.
Titanium tetrachloride is very irritating to the eyes
, mucous membranes, and the lungs
. Breathing in large amounts can cause serious injury to the lungs. Contact with the liquid can burn
the eyes and skin. The Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) has identified 1,416 hazardous waste sites
on its National Priorities List (NPL) sites. Titanium tetrachloride has not been found in any of the sites on the NPL. However, the number of NPL sites evaluated for titanium tetrachloride is not known.
