Abstract

"Previous investigations undertaken at the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy on the deposition of titanium involved the use of fused salt baths, aqueous solutions, and cementation processes. The fused salt baths produced satisfactory coatings on small metal parts. Some difficulty was encountered however, when the coating of large articles was attempted.

For this reason, it was decided to investigate the possibility of titanium deposition by the reaction of a volatile titanium compound with a metal surface. Two different compounds were proposed for investigation, (1) a lower chloride of titanium and (2) an iodide of titanium. The reaction with the iodide was studied to the greater extent and is the principle subject of this thesis. The reaction is believed to occur by the formation of titanium iodide from iodine and titanium which then reacts with the metal surface to form a deposit of titanium and a volatile iodide of the metal. The investigation of the reaction consisted of examining the variables of temperature of reaction, time at temperature, amount of iodine and numerous methods of packing or suspending the specimens and reactants"--Introduction, page 1.
