Silicones Types

Compounds of Silicon

Silicones:  These are organosilicon polymers containing Si-O-Si linkages. These are formed by the hydrolysis of alkyl or aryl substituted chlorosilanes and their subsequent polymerization. The alkyl or aryl substituted chlorosilanes are prepared by the reaction of Grignard reagent and silicon tetrachloride.
