Abstract:Carbothermic reduction method is an economical method for producing titanium carbide powder. In the present work, this method was used to produce titanium carbide powder using commercial raw materials. The starting materials were TiO2 and petroleum coke, which were mixed and milled, sieved and then placed in an electrical resistance furnace (Acheson furnace). The reduction was carried out between 25 and 30 V and the current of 1800–2000 A. When the raw materials molar composition ratio was TiO2/C=1 : 0·54, the best result was obtained. The samples were characterised by XRD, AAS and PSA techniques.
