To search by structure, left click in the box below to display the chemdraw toolbar. Then, draw the chemical structure of interest in the box using the toolbar. When your structure is complete, click “Search by Name” or “Search by SMILES” to generate the product name or SMILES respectively. This feature will search within the Gelest product database for matching chemical names or SMILES. Note: In cases where Gelest uses alternate chemical names, it may be necessary to search for the product of interest by its CAS#.

Carbosilanes are compounds in which the elements of silicon and carbon alternate in a molecular framework or polymeric backbone in an approximate ratio of 1:1. By appropriate selection of the carbosilane precursor and deposition conditions the silicon carbide framework can be shifted toward substituted silicon and diamond-like structures.
Volatile Higher Silane
Volatile higher silanes are low temperature, high deposition rate precursors. By appropriate selection of precursor and deposition conditions, silicon deposition can be shifted from amorphous hydrogenated silicon toward microcrystalline silicon structures. As the number of silicon atoms increases beyond two, electrons are capable of sigma–sigma bond conjugation. The dissociative adsorption of two of the three hydrogen atoms on terminal silicon atoms has a lower energy barrier.
