The Science and Technology of Silicones and Silicone-Modified Materials

Stephen J. Clarson, John J. Fitzgerald, Micheal J. Owen, Steven S. Smith, and Mark E. Van Dyke

American Chemical Society

The world-wide sales of polysiloxanes or silicones at the beginning of this new millennium is approximately $10 billion per year. Commercial products range from those entirely composed of silicone to products where the silicone is a low level but key component. This symposium covered the recent academic and technological developments behind silicones and silicone-modified materials and the sessions were well attended of wide interest to both the academic and industrial communities.
