Organic Silicon
The Challenge
  • Organic silicon can be used to produce a great variety of products. The main product is chloro(methyl)silane.
  • Raw materials, such as silica powder, chloromethane, chlorobenzene, etc., are synthesized by catalytic reaction into methyl chlorosilane, phenyltrichlorosilane and other monomers, then generate various polymers through a series of chemical reactions and then are processed into different kinds of products.
  • A series of products derived from methyl chlorosilane monomers usually account for more than 90% of total organic silicon products.
  • Production technologies of organic silicon are very complex and its industrialization is challenging.
  • Moreover, any change needed to correct an out of spec product required almost twelve hours.
