I just finished rubbing some titanium dioxide on my teeth.
Did you brush your teeth today? If so, then you did the same.
I’m not a chemist.
Titanium Dioxide which based on my one year of college chemistry in which I started the lab trash can on fire with a chunk of pure sodium, sounds like titanium rust to me. When iron becomes iron oxide we call it rust.
This exploratory adventure in researching this stuff started when I bought some Dove bar soap - “Limited Edition”. I’ve heard of limited edition whiskey, cars, posters, but bar soap? What was this limited edition bar soap?
I’m thinking it’s yet another example from the “a few clowns short of a circus” marketing team.
So I studied the label (BTW I think product labeling is one of the best ideas our government has done) and noticed this titanium stuff.
It just seemed odd to me. Titanium, the space age metal found in spacecraft, jet engines and my bar soap.
Please feel free to fill me in on whatever titanium knowledge you have. I did a quick wikipedia read and learned that it is a common white pigment. It is found in most toothpaste. My bar soap was white.
I might experiment with dropping the soap and seeing if it is stronger than other soap - if I get some funding.
Do you find titanium use odd?
