Titanium oxides were successfully deoxygenated by electrochemical reduction in molten calcium chloride. Electrolysis was performed below the standard decomposition potential of CaCl2 at 900-950°C using a graphite counter electrode with titanium dioxide preforms of varying density, prepared by sintering precursor powders. Material was characterised pre- and post-reduction by scanning electron microscopy, x-ray energy dispersive spectrometry and x-ray diffraction techniques.
