Description

Any of several silicone polymers which have a silicone-carbon bond. Organosilicon compounds were first made by Friedel in 1863. Since silicon is quadrivalent like carbon, it has a very similar chemistry. The silicon-carbon bond is almost as strong as a carbon-carbon bond. See also silicone.
