About (5N) 99.999% Silicon Oxide

High Purity (99.999%) Silicon Oxide (SiO2) PowderAmerican Elements manufactures high purity (5N, 99.999%) silicon dioxide powder (also referred to as High grade quartz or HPG) in solar, electronics, optical, and semiconductor grades suitable for exacting requirements of emerging technologies. American Elements customers use high purity silicon dioxide in the production optical glasses, LED and fiber optics, solar panels, semiconductor diffusion barriers and fillers, thermal spray coatings, and the synthesis of ultra high purity silicon metal via Czochralski crystal growth or evaporation. High purity silica powder also has applications in alloy manufacturing as a metallurgical slag additive. Pharmaceutical and cosmetics grade silica powder is also available. Minimizing impurities in American Elements silicon dioxide powder make it suitable for use as a reference standard for XRD and impurity testing. Particle sizes include -325 mesh and other standard and custom values. Please request a quote above to receive pricing information based on your specifications.

See more Silicon products. Silicon (atomic symbol: Si, atomic number: 14) is a Block P, Group 14, Period 3 element with an atomic weight of 28.085. Silicon Bohr MoleculeThe number of electrons in each of Silicon's shells is 2, 8, 4 and its electron configuration is [Ne] 3s2 3p2. The silicon atom has a radius of 111 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 210 pm. Silicon was discovered and first isolated by Jöns Jacob Berzelius in 1823. Silicon makes up 25.7% of the earth's crust, by weight, and is the second most abundant element, exceeded only by oxygen. The metalloid is rarely found in pure crystal form and is usually produced from the iron-silicon alloy ferrosilicon. Elemental SiliconSilica (or silicon dioxide), as sand, is a principal ingredient of glass, one of the most inexpensive of materials with excellent mechanical, optical, thermal, and electrical properties. Ultra high purity silicon can be doped with boron, gallium, phosphorus, or arsenic to produce silicon for use in transistors, solar cells, rectifiers, and other solid-state devices which are used extensively in the electronics industry.The name Silicon originates from the Latin word silex which means flint or hard stone.
