I'm struggling to find a concise one-word verb (for a paper title) that means "to make use of". The context is that I have a material—let's call it "Thulium"—that people don't think is very useful. I'm writing a paper that discusses how Thulium can be quite useful.
I would prefer the title to be of the form "[verb] ing Thulium".
I have thought of the following:
- "Leveraging Thulium" (sounds too mechanical and is clichéd in my area)
- "Harnessing Thulium" (refers too much to controlling, not enough to making use of; plus since my Thulium is quite boring, it sounds a bit like "Harnessing Grass")
- "Consuming Thulium" (doesn't clarify a benefit)
- "Exploiting Thulium" ("exploiting" has too many negative connotations)
Any other suggestions?
Ideally the verb should convey a sense of excitement about using Thulium.
