About Silicon Oxycarbide

Silicon Oxycarbide is a novel amorphous ceramic glass containing silicon, oxygen, and carbon atoms in various ratios. Because of its high thermal stability, durability, corrosion resistance, and other unique properties, it has numerous applications in fields such as additive manufacturing, lithium-ion batteries, and advanced optics. American Elements can produce silicon oxycarbide in varying ratios of Si-O-C and can produce compositions to customer specifications.

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.
