Chromium antimony titanate

Jump to navigation Jump to search


A rich yellow ceramic colorant developed in the early 20th century. Chromium antimony titanate is a solid solution of chromium antimonate and titanium dioxide. Analysis shows the approximate proportions are 2-5% chromic oxide, 10-20 % antimony pentoxide, with the remainder titanium dioxide. The additions of electropositive elements will both intensify and darken the yellow color.
