Best answer

van Arkel method is used for refining Zr and Ti. In this method crude metal is heated with iodine.

Zr + 2I2 → ZrI4

ZrI4 +1800K ⎯⎯→ Zr + 2I2 39. 

Generally, two things are considered so that proper precautions can be taken.

(i) reactivity of metal produced.

(ii) suitability of electrodes.
