- n. Any of a group of silicon hydrides having the general formula SiH that are analogous to the paraffin hydrocarbons.
- sil(icon) + (meth)ane. (American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)
“The result is that the effective specific impulse of this system would not be 280 seconds, but 280 seconds multiplied by the ratio of total propellant to silane, which is 3.75.”
“The intermediate chemical is a "silane," a molecule that has silicon and alkanes (chains of carbon atoms).”
“(N2) & specialty gases such as silane (SiH4), ammonia (NH3) to produce Si Thin Film cells: carrier gases (N2, H2), specialty gases (SiH4, NF3, dopant mixtures) and coating precursor materials.”
“As it ascends towards the surface of the earth, it passes through the SiC layer, and reacts with the Si and the C to form CH4 (methane) and SiH4 (silane).”
“Then, if you want completely pure silicon, all you have to do is pipe the silane to another reactor where you decompose it under high temperatures, thereby producing pure silicon and releasing the hydrogen to make more silane.”
“Alternatively, instead of decomposing the silane, you can liquefy it by refrigerating it down to -112°C.”
“Diborane, B2H6, will also burn in carbon dioxide, with a specific impulse of 300 seconds at a mixture ratio of three parts carbon dioxide to one part diborane.30 A diborane/carbon dioxide rocket hopper could thus have an effective specific impulse of 1,200 seconds, even better than the silane/carbon dioxide system discussed above.”
“Not many things will burn in carbon dioxide, but silane will, in accordance with:”
“At room temperature or above, silane is a gas, so it can easily be separated from hydrides of the other metals, all of which are solids.”
“In reaction 8, 73 percent of the propellant mass is carbon dioxide, only 27 percent is silane.”

I'll get back to you about what binds these words together, but one think for sure, I didn't learn them in school or from reading great words of literature. If you see the pattern, feel free to con...
