Information about Silicones?
« on: April 22, 2004, 11:04:11 PM »
Hey all,
I am a Grade 11 chemistry student in high school. For a project, I have to find different physical and chemical properties of different silicones such as polydimethylsiloxane, polymethylphenysiloxane, and polydiphenysiloxane. Where could I find this information?

Thanks,

John

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

You should also take a trip to your local university library.  There are a lot of specialty books written about strange chemicals, including siloxanes.  IIRC, silly putty is an organic-silicon polymer.  Take a look by title, by subject, and ask the people at the reference desk to help you out.
