MORRISVILLE, PA - Gelest Inc., Morrisville, PA, announced the publication of “Silicon Compounds: Silanes & Silicones, 5000A.” This handbook introduces over 250 new compounds and nearly 50 new polymers, including silanes for coupling agent applications and new functional and non-functional dipodal structures.

The comprehensive silicon compound handbook contains information on silanes for coupling agent applications with new functional and non-functional dipodal structures, silanes for hydrophilic surface treatment with a greater range of PEG substitution, new silanes for cross-coupling applications in organic synthesis, silanes and silicones for “click chemistry” including new azide and acetylene functional silanes, volatile carbosilane and oligosilanes for semiconductor applications, symmetric and dual functional macromers for biomaterials and microfluidics, liquid silsesquioxane T-resins for high-temperature coatings, and silanes and silicones with high refractive index and chromogenic properties.

It also includes technical data for over 3,000 compounds, accompanied by over 1,000 new corresponding references, over 100 new application equations or figures, and the introduction of a cross-reference system to facilitate finding related products.

A library of reference information and technical papers complements the handbook.
