Abstract—Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a white solid inorganic substance that is thermally stable, non-flammable, poorly soluble, and not classified as hazardous according to the United Nations’ (UN) Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). It is the oxide of the metal titanium, occurs naturally in several kinds of rock and mineral sands. Titanium is the ninth most common element in the earth’s crust. Titanium dioxide is typically thought of as being chemically inert. Titanium dioxide is now finding a lot of application in the nanotechnology, Tribology and Industries.

Index Terms—Titanium dioxide, Metal oxide, Agglomeration
