About Silicon. Silicon is a hard and crystalline solid with a grey color. It is a semiconductor and relatively unreactive. Silicon is one of the most important technical materials, since modern electronics are almost exclusively based on silicon devices nowadays. However, its main uses are still in the aluminum alloys and chemical industries.
Chemical Formula. Si
Commercial Grades. Ferrosilicon; regular grade (min. 97% purity); semiconductor/hyperpure grade (min. 99.97% purity); metallurgical grade; amorphous
Uses. Silicon is mainly employed as alloying agent in aluminum, steel, copper, bronze, iron; semiconductor in electronic devices (photovoltaic cells, computer circuitry, transistors, etc); deoxidizer; cermets; and refractories.
- Quartz + metallurgical coke (arc/carbothermal reduction)
- Silicon dioxide + aluminum metal (aluminothermal reduction)
Derivatives. Chlorotrimethylsilane; dichlorodimethylsilane; dichlorodiphenylsilane; dichloromethylsilane; silicon nitride; silicon tetrachloride; silicon tetrafluoride; trichloromethylsilane; trichlorophenylsilane; and trichlorosilane.
