The purpose of this study is to clarify the physicochemical properties of Ti2O3 for hydrogen production. The hydrogen production properties of Ti2O3 before and after milling in pure water were investigated in a flat-bottomed reaction vessel made of a Pyrex glass cell which was attached to a closed-gas circulation system under an Ar atmosphere at room temperature using three different types of stirring rod. Ti 2O3 was found to be a new material for mechano-chemical hydrogen production, although it did not exhibit photocatalysis or mechano-catalysis for hydrogen production.
