# What is the chemical equation for the following reaction: Solid titanium (V) oxide reacts with liquid water to produce titanium (V) hydroxide?

Do you mean tantulum or titanium?

#### Explanation:

$\text{Titanic oxide}$ is $T i {O}_{2}$; vast quantities of this material are used by the paints and pigments industry to produce the white paint, that $\text{is whiter than white.}$

$T i \left(+ I V\right)$ is the maximum oxidation state available.

$T i C {l}_{4}$ reacts with water to give $\text{titanic oxide}$:

$T i C {l}_{4} \left(l\right) + 2 {H}_{2} O \left(l\right) \rightarrow T i {O}_{2} \left(s\right) + 4 H C l \left(a q\right)$.
