Titanium nitrate is the inorganic compound with formula Ti(NO3)4. It is a colorless, diamagnetic solid that sublimes readily. It is an unusual example of a volatile binary transition metal nitrate. Ill defined species called titanium nitrate are produced upon dissolution of titanium or its oxides in nitric acid.

Except where otherwise noted, data are given for materials in their standard state (at 25 °C [77 °F], 100 kPa).
In the infrared spectrum, it absorbs strongly at 1635 cm−1, assigned to a N-O vibrational mode.
Titanium nitrate is hygroscopic, converting to ill-defined hydrates. The anhydrous material is highly reactive, even toward hydrocarbons. Titanium nitrate also reacts with n-dodecane, p-dichlorobenzene, anisole, biphenyl,
It decomposes thermally to titanium dioxide.
