William Gregor

William Gregor discovered titanium in 1791. Titanium is used for alloys with aluminum, manganese, iron, and other metals. These alloys of titanium are used principally in the aerospace industry, for both airframes and engines, where lightweight strength ability to withstand extremes of temperature are important.

Titanium is a lustrous transition metal with a silver color, low density, and high strength. It is highly resistant to corrosion in sea water and chlorine. Titanium readily reacts with oxygen at 2,190 F in air, and at 1,130 F in pure oxygen, forming titanium dioxide. It is one of the few elements that burns in pure nitrogen gas, reacting at 1,470 F to form titanium nitride.

Titanium is named for the Titans in mythology. In Greek mythology, the Titans were the gods of Earth. Titanium is used in medical implants and for jewelry because it is considered non-toxic and non-reactive. Titanium containers may have application for the long term storage of nuclear waste.
