Inorganic Materials Synthesis (Titanic Acid Compounds)

Titanic acid compounds include materials with a wide variety of characteristics, such as barium titanate (known for ferroelectricity) and aluminum titanate (known for thermal shock resistance). Technologies for using titanic acid compounds are now being developed. Kubota has unique technologies, including one for producing specially shaped titanic acid compounds and another for synthesizing derivatives from chain architectures such as TiO6 octahedra, utilizing intercalation. A variety of properties achieved through integrating these technologies offer tremendous potential for future development of functional materials.

Core Technologies

Shape Control Using the Melting Method

Kubota manufactures plate-like polycrystalline potassium hexatitanate using a proprietary melting method. This method produces polycrystals of large diameter and length by utilizing the anisotropic nature of crystal growth speed during rapid solidification. With this method, low-purity natural titanium oxide can be used as a raw material, whereas only high-purity titanium oxide can be used in other methods.

Intercalation (Ionic Reaction)

Titanic acid intercalation compound => Ion exchange => Crystal stabilization

Kubota has the technical know-how to modify titanic acid intercalation compounds obtained by the melting method so that they have different functions via exchange of intercalated ions.
When this is combined with a technology for making special shapes which are not achievable using conventional methods, there is potential to produce titanic acid compounds with entirely new properties.
