Titanium is not commonly extracted by electrolysis for several reasons.

Firstly, the chemical reactivity of titanium makes it difficult to achieve electrodeposition efficiently.

Secondly, the high melting point of titanium requires high energy inputs for electrolytic extraction, making the process less economically viable.

Additionally, the complex nature of titanium ores and the presence of other elements can complicate the electrolysis process.

Instead, common methods for extracting titanium include the Kroll process and other chemical reduction techniques. These methods have been developed to handle the unique characteristics of titanium and to achieve efficient extraction.
