Polymer Compounds Reference Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Silicon in Organic, Organometallic and Polymer Chemistry
by Michael A. Brook

A comprehensive, up-to-date reference to synthetic applications of organosilicon chemistry!

This book presents a much-needed overview of silicon chemistry, allowing fundamental and applied scientists to take full advantage of progress made within and outside their primary fields of expertise.

Clear, concise coverage includes:

  • The mechanistic basis for the development of new silicon-based reactions
  • Formation and cleavage of silane reagents and functional siliconheteroatom compounds
  • Silicones, silica, polysilanes, and other silicon-containing polymers
  • Properties of molecules containing silicon, including bioactivity
  • Methods for the preparation of Si-C compounds
  • Silicon in organic synthesis
  • An extensive functional group index for easy access to functional group transformations
  • Plus much more!

With an emphasis on the preparation and reactivity of silicon compounds in organic, organometallic, and polymer chemistry, the author examines a broad range of useful topics—from mechanisms to syntheses of and syntheses using different organofunctional silanes. Numerous schemes as well as up-to-date examples from academia and industry will help readers to solve current synthetic problems and explore ideas for future research.
