Examples include Li2O, Na2O, and K2O. 7â•… Rutile Structure In TiO2, the coordination number of Ti is 6 with a valence of 4+, leading to bond strength of 2/3, which requires an oxygen ion coordination number of 3. 9 for the MnO2 structure. However, the close proximity of cations leads to distortion and results in a nearly close packed lattice. Examples include SnO2, MnO2, and PbO2. 8â•… Al2O3 Corundum Structure In the corundum structure, the Al has a valence of 3+ with coordination number 6, resulting in a bond strength of 1/2.

Since this shear stress induced phase transformation occurs with a 4%–5% volume expansion in zirconia, it can suppress crack propagation or can even result in crack closure (see Chapter 10 for details). Titanium oxide (TiO2) occurs most commonly as rutile, with other structures being anatase, brookite, and other high-temperature phases. The demarcating nature of TiO2 is its photocatalytic property, which allows enhancement of radical generation in the presence of light. Additionally, TiO2 is widely used in marking the lanes on roads, in superhydrophobic and self-cleaning glasses, in energy generation, and so on.
