History : Titanium dioxide was called ilmenite after the discovery of large deposits of titanium ore in Ilmen (Russia) during the eighteenth century ; but its use as a pigment starts later, during the 20th century. Because of its qualities (see colors), this pigment has been preferred to other white pigments despite its higher cost.
