The Origin of the Name of Titanium
In 1795, the German chemist Klaprot discovered this oxide when he analyzed the red rutile produced in Hungary. He advocated the method of naming uranium (found in Kramer in 1789), citing the name of the Titan protoss "Titanic" in Greek mythology to name this new element "Titanium". Chinese is named Ti according to its transliteration. When he heard about Gregor's earlier findings, Klaprot obtained some samples of Manakan minerals and confirmed that it contained titanium.
