TiO2 is a major constituent of paint (replaced Pb). I suspect it's very similar to silica, and, therefore, to be avoided by ones lungs; probably edible tho!

I know it's titanium dioxide smoke.

Ah, google finds it: TiCl4, a titanium salt that happens to be liquid at
room temperature. Weird stuff! In air it sends out clouds of TiO2 smoke.
Paint it on bluff bodies in a wind tunnel to see boundary-layer turbulence
transitions, etc.

Tappers,

I remember a teacher in college showing me a liquid that would turn
to smoke when squirted on any surface. It was apparently developed for use
in wind tunnels. I thought it was called liquid smoke, but when I put in
that search term all I get is barbecue flavorings. Does anyone know the
name of this fluid or where I can find it? Thank you...
