Provided is lithium titanate that is readily pulverized, and readily dispersed in a binding agent. The lithium titanate is characterized in that the value of a degree of pulverization Zd representing the ratio of the 50% cumulative diameter pre- and post-pulverization is 2 or greater. The lithium titanate is produced by the following steps (1)-(3). (1) a step in which titanyl sulfate or titanium sulfate is thermally hydrolyzed to produce metatitanic acid; (2) a step in which a slurry containing the metatitanic acid is prepared, and the slurry, subsequent to neutralization to bring the pH to 6.0-9.0, undergoes solid-liquid separation, to produce a metatitanic acid-containing titanium starting material having a BET specific surface area of 100-400 m^(2)/g, and in which the sulfuric acid (SO_(4)) content is 0.01-2.0 mass% with respect to the amount of metatitanic acid, on a TiO_(2)-converted basis; and (3) a step in which the titanium starting material and a lithium compound are mixed and baked.

Titanium dioxide and an electro-conductive titanium oxide which each includes particles having a large major-axis length in a large proportion and comprises columnar particles having a satisfactory particle size distribution. A titanium compound, an alkali metal compound, and an oxyphosphorus compound are heated/fired in the presence of titanium dioxide nucleus crystals having an aspect ratio of 2 or higher to grow the titanium dioxide nucleus crystals. Subsequently, a titanium compound, an alkali metal compound, and an oxyphosphorus compound are further added and heated/fired in the presence of the grown titanium dioxide nucleus crystals. Thus, titanium dioxide is produced which comprises columnar particles having a weight-average major-axis length of 7.0-15.0 m and in which particles having a major-axis length of 10 m or longer account for 15 wt. % or more of all the particles. A solution of a tin compound and a solution of compounds of antimony, phosphorus, etc. are added to a suspension obtained by suspending the titanium dioxide. The particles are sedimented. Subsequently, the product obtained is heated/fired to produce an electro-conductive titanium oxide which comprises the titanium dioxide and an electro-conductive coating formed on the surface thereof.

The purpose of the present invention is to provide a metallic copper dispersion: capable of maintaining dispersion stability of metallic copper particles for a long period of time; suitable for inkjet printing, spray coating, or the like; and capable of allowing a metallic copper-containing film having an excellent electrical conductivity and metallic color tone to be manufactured in a simple manner by performing low-temperature heating or plasma irradiation after application. The metallic copper dispersion is a dispersion containing at least an organic solvent, a polymer dispersant, and metallic copper particles having gelatin on the particle surface, wherein the metallic copper particles in the dispersion have a cumulative 50% particle size (D50) of 1-130 nm and a cumulative 90% particle size (D90) of 10-300 nm, and the polymer dispersant has an amine number of 10-150 mgKOH/g. The metallic copper dispersion is manufactured by reducing copper oxide in an aqueous solvent in the presence of gelatin, then performing solid-liquid separation, and then mixing the obtained metallic copper particles having gelatin on the particle surface and the polymer dispersant into the organic solvent.

An opening of a packaging member containing a positive electrode, a negative electrode, and a non-aqueous electrolyte solution is temporarily sealed to produce a temporarily sealed battery. The temporarily sealed battery is initially charged so that a negative electrode potential becomes higher than 0.8 V and 1.4 V or lower (versus Li/Li^(+)), and is stored in an atmosphere of 50C or higher and lower than 80C. Thereafter, gas is discharged from the temporarily sealed battery, and the temporarily sealed battery is finally sealed to produce a non-aqueous electrolyte secondary battery. Lithium titanate with a spinel structure, lithium titanate with a ramsdellite structure, Li_(4+x)Ti_(5)O_(12), Li_(2+x)Ti_(3)O_(7), a titanic acid compound given by the general formula H_(2)Ti_(n)O_(2n+1), or a monoclinic titanium composite oxide such as a bronze titanium oxide may be used as the titanium composite oxide.
