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#.

SILICON DIOXIDE, amorphous
Product data and descriptions listed are typical values, not intended to be used as specification.
A range of silica structures from 20 nm to 1 micron have been modified with silanes to reduce hydroxyl content allowing improved dispersion. Other versions have monolayers with isolated secondary amine functionality, providing controlled interactions with resins. Systems that maintain low levels of hydroxyls have improved electrical properties. Introduction of low levels of secondary amines impart improved mechanical properties particularly in high humidity environments.
