Continuing my habit of doing things a little differently than expected, I wrote a Senior Thesis on my attempt to make an organosilicon free radical, but the advisor for it was an organic chemist who specialized in natural products.
I arranged that requisition, tested the machine on a standard organosilicon compound (polydimethylsiloxane) at the manufacturer's laboratory and factory, and impatiently did the initial installation itself when it was delivered.
Gelest, Inc., headquartered in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, is recognized worldwide as an innovator, manufacturer and supplier of commercial and research quantities of organosilicon compounds, metal-organic and specialty germanium compounds.
All formulations are aqueous solutions which may be scented and / or colored and all contain a water soluble, organosilicon quaternary ammonium compound or mixture thereof; specifically 3 - (trimethoxysilyl) - propyloctadecyl-dimethyl ammonium chloride or 3 - (trimethoxysilyl) propyldidecylmethyl ammonium chloride and the trisilanol, polysiloxanol and water soluble polysiloxane derivatives thereof.
The formal reaction partner is a hydrosilane, an organosilicon compound that acts as a reducing agent.
Using organosilicon compounds, West’s team has developed a generation of rechargeable lithium ion batteries with lifetimes more than twice as long as current medical device batteries.
A critical advantage of the new battery technology is lifespan: If you’re going to implant these things, you want a battery lifetime of at least 10 years, said West, whose organosilicon batteries are projected to power tiny implantable devices for more than 12 years.
