Titanium(III) fluoride (TiF3) is a chemical compound of titanium in its oxidation state +3. It can be obtained by the reaction of titanium(III) oxide with hydrofluoric acid (this reaction reverses if TiF3 is dissolved in excess water), or by reduction of titanium tetrafluoride.

Conditions/substances to avoid are: strong acids, strong oxidizers.
