Titanium(II) oxide (chemical compound of titanium and oxygen. It can be prepared from titanium dioxide and titanium metal at 1500 °C.[1] It is non-stoichiometric in a range TiO0.7 to TiO1.3 and this is caused by vacancies of either Ti or O in the defect rock salt structure.[1] In pure TiO 15% of both Ti and O sites are vacant.[1] Careful annealing can cause ordering of the vacancies producing a monoclinic form which has 5 TiO units in the primitive cell that exhibits higher resistivity.[2] A high temperature form with titanium atoms with trigonal prismatic coordination is also known.[3] Acid solutions of TiO are stable for a short time then decompose to give hydrogen:[1]

Ti2+ + H+ → Ti3+ + ½ H2

Evidence has been obtained for the presence of the diatomic molecule TiO in the interstellar medium.[4] TiO shows strong bands in the optical spectra of cool (M-type) stars.[5]
