TiO2, also known as titanium (IV) oxide or titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium. It is used as a pigment under the names titanium white, Pigment White 6 (PW6), or CI 77891. Four naturally occurring TiO2 polymorphs exist. They are rutile, anatase, brookite and TiO2 (B). Anatase and rutile are tetragonal, brookite is orthorhombic and TiO2 (B) is monoclinic. In all four polymorphs, titanium is coordinated octahedrally by oxygen, but the position of the octahedra differs between polymorphs. TiO2 is widely used in confectionery, cosmetics, foods, in the plastics industry, and in topical and oral pharmaceutical formulations as a white pigment. In pharmaceutical formulations, TiO2 is used as a white pigment in film-coating suspensions, sugar-coated tablets, and gelatin capsules. TiO2 may also be admixed with other pigments. TiO2 is also used in dermatological preparations and cosmetics, such as sunscreens.
