  • THE potential role of inorganic and organometallic silicon compounds in the development of new chemical reagents, polymers, glasses and ceramics1 is limited at present by the paucity of simple silicon-containing starting materials. Whereas industrial carbon-based chemistry can draw on the diversity of compounds produced from crude oil, coal or other natural sources, silicon chemistry2 relies almost exclusively on the carbothermal reduction of SiO2 to silicon. This is then transformed into… CONTINUE READING
