Titanium diboride is being evaluated as a substitute cathode material in aluminum cells for energy savings. A reduction of approximately 1 volt in the cell voltage and 20% power savings have been reported. Various methods of preparation of titanium boride include arc melting of TiOz, B2O3 and carbon mixture. Conditions for the preparation of TiB2 in a 60 KVA arc furnace have been worked out and the results presented. 95% TiBp was obtained.
