|The titanium (Ti) family containswhat one might call "High-Tech" metals.|
|Noting need to be said to titanium,
except that it is expensive. Not because it is rare (it is not) but because it
Metallic zirconium (Zr) is essential in nuclear power plants and its oxide, zirconia, is a key material for modern ceramic applications.
Hafnium oxide not so long ago became a key ingredient in modern microelectronic circuits.
