Ill start.

Titanium Dioxide-
Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide or titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium, chemical formula TiO2. When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white, Pigment White 6, or CI 77891. It is noteworthy for its wide range of applications, from paint to sunscreen to food colouring.

We use TIO2 by the pallet full where I work in the plastic processing industry. Good stuff!

Surfactants are compounds that lower the surface tension of a liquid, allowing easier spreading, and lowering of the interfacial tension between two liquids, or between a liquid and a solid. Surfactants may act as: detergents, wetting agents, emulsifiers, foaming agents, and dispersants.

Chuckie was in chemistry class
But he ain't in there no more.
'Cause the H20 he thought he drank
Was H2SO4.

For the three people in the room that get that, it's funny as hell.

For the rest, take a moment to pause and thank God that you aren't a geek.

But the coolist bit is that oxides of titanium are transparent, significantly harder than pure titanium, and occur rapidly in normal circumstances. Best yet, when a current and ionic solution are pared to complete a circuit, the thickness of this transparent oxide layer is proportional to the voltage applied. This creates the opportunity for this transparent layer to create diffraction-based coloration, similar to the rainbows of a drop of oil in a parking lot puddle. Endless fun ensues for the owner of the titanium bicycle and a regulated voltage supply:



Once somebody helps me sort masking methods, I'm so doing this to the logos on my Litespeed.

Nanoscale titanium oxide (which is used in the sunscreen industry) and non-nano scale particles have significantly different occupational exposure limits
