Electrochemical Production of Titanium from Oxycarbide Anodes
The aim of this work was to improve the quality of the produced titanium at the cathode in electrolysis experiments using a titanium oxycarbide anode, which is made of a solid solution of TiC and TiO. Two different approaches were tested: solid titanium deposition from a NaCl-Na3AlF6 electrolyte, and a standard NaCl-KCl electrolyte with a liquid metal cathode producing a titanium alloy.
