Additional information

In water, titanium trichloride rapidly hydrolyses to the naturally occuring titanium dioxide and to hydrochloric acid. The toxicity of titanium dioxide on fish was investigated by Dorfman in a static system, using mummichog (Fundulus heteroclitus) as test organism. The 96 hour LC50 value was shown to be greated than 1000 mg/L (Dorfman, 1977).
