Silicon and silicon compounds

Silica, as sand, is a principal ingredient of glass--a material with excellent mechanical, optical, thermal, and electrical properties. Ultra high purity silicon can be doped with boron, gallium, phosphorus, or arsenic to produce silicon for use in transistors, solar cells, rectifiers, and other solid-state devices which are used extensively in the electronics industry.

Silcones, a large family of synthetic polymers, are important products of silicon. These range from liquids to hard glass-like solids with many useful properties. Silicon is available as metal and compounds with purities from 99% to 99.999% (ACS grade to ultra-high purity).

Silicon and silicon compounds

Elemental or metallic forms include pellets, rod, wire and granules for evaporation source material purposes. Silicon oxides are available in powder and dense pellet form for such uses as optical coating and thin film applications. Silicon fluoride is an insoluble silicon source for uses in which the oxide is undesirable such as metallurgy, chemical and physical vapor deposition and in some optical coatings. Silicon is also available in soluble forms including chlorides and acetates. These compounds can be manufactured as solutions at specified stoichiometries.
