titanium (Ti)

[tītā′nē·əm]
Etymology: Gk, Titan, mythic giant
a chemical element. Its atomic number is 22; its atomic mass is 47.88. An alloy of titanium is used in the manufacture of orthopedic prostheses and dental implants. Titanium dioxide is the active ingredient in a number of topical ointments and lotions. Titanium dioxide is one of the whitest substances known and is used as a base pigment in many sunscreens.

titanium,

n a lightweight, strong, corrosion-resistant chemical element with a white-silver color and metallic luster. Commercially pure titanium and titanium alloys are used in the fabrication of dental implants. Titanium is also used in the manufacture of alloys, such as aluminum and iron, and in powdered form in materials such as graphite composites.
