[Named after the Titans, the sons of the earth goddess of Greek mythology] French: titane

Description: Titanium is a hard, lustrous, silvery metal which resists corrosion due to an oxide layer on its surface. However, the powdered metal will burn if ignited. Titanium is unaffected by many acids (except HF, H3PO4 an concentrated H2SO4), and alkalis. White titanium dioxide is used in paints because of its covering power. The metal itself is used in chemical plants, lightweight alloys, hip replacement joints, etc.
