In 1823, Rose (1) reported the preparation of a week structured titania jelly by the treatment if fusion of sodium carbonate and titanium dioxide wit hydrochloric acid. In 1938, Jacober (3) prepared weak titania jellies by a method similar to that used by Klosky and Marzano. Furthering this previous research, Jacober went on to demonstrate that titanium, as might be expected from its close similarity to silicon and its position in the same periodic family, shows a linear relation between the reciprocal of absolute temperature and the logarithm of the time of set of its gels, as silicon does.
