Silicone is a class of polymers, in which silicon atoms are linked via oxygen atoms, each silicon atom bearing one or several organic groups (usually methyl or phenyl in industrial production). Silicon compounds are quite abundant in nature, but silicones are not found naturally. They were first synthetized in 1930, with industrial production beginning nine years later and growing rapidly in the years that followed, a result of the high demand for silicones in World War II. Currently, they have a wide variety of commercial forms and applications, ranging from automotive to pharmaceutical industries.
