Titanium, the jack-of-all-trades
Titanium is a metal of our everyday lives, and for many people it is even a vital metal when it comes to prostheses. It was only discovered shortly before aluminum at the end of the 18th century, and it took a long time, until the middle of the 20th century, before it could start its triumphal procession. This was due to the manufacturing process, which developed only gradually and is very complex, leading to pure titanium(ium) only via intermediate thermal-chemical steps. Titanium is very light, extremely tough and dimensionally stable, and plays a major role in aviation. Its beautiful bluish oxide layer also makes it interesting for jewelry making.
