What is Silicon Dioxide SiO2 powder ?

Silica or silicon dioxide is a silicon oxide with the chemical formula SiO2. The most common form in nature is quartz and various organisms. In many parts of the world, silica is the main component of sand. Silica is one of the most complex and abundant material families in the form of mixtures of various minerals and synthetic products. Notable examples include fused silicafumed silicasilica gel, and aerogel. It is used in structural materials, microelectronics (as electrical insulators), and components in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Inhalation of finely divided crystalline silica is toxic and can cause severe inflammation of lung tissue, silicosis, bronchitis, lung cancer, and systemic autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. High-dose inhalation of amorphous silica can cause non-permanent short-term inflammation, and all effects can be cured.

Long-range arrangement of silicon and oxygen atoms forms crystalline silica, and short-range arrangement or long-range disordered arrangement forms amorphous silica. In a silicon dioxide crystal, the silicon atoms are at the center of a regular tetrahedron, and the four oxygen atoms are at the four corners. Many tetrahedrons are held together by oxygen atoms at the four corners. Two tetrahedrons share each oxygen atom; each oxygen atom is bonded to two silicon atoms.

The simplest molecular formula for silica is SiO2, but SiO2 does not represent a simple molecule (just the ratio of silicon atoms to the number of oxygen atoms in the silica crystal). Pure natural silica crystal is a hard, fragile, insoluble, colorless, and transparent solid often used to manufacture optical instruments.

Colloidal silicon dioxide is gaseous silica prepared by hydrolysis of silica compounds used in many foods and medicines.

How is Silicon Dioxide SiO2 powder produced?

Preparation method of amorphous silicon dioxide

The preparation of amorphous silica includes five steps: the preparation of silica gel, granulation process, sintering process, cleaning process, and drying process.

1. Preparation of silica gel

Crushing silicon tetrachloride can produce silica gel, pulverizing organic silicon compounds (such as tetra methoxy siloxane) to produce silica gel, or using fumed silica can produce high-quality silica gel.

2. Granulation process

Drying the silicone gel into a dry powder, pulverizing the dry powder, and then performing classification can obtain a silica powder with a desired average yield.

3. Sintering process

The silica powder obtained in the granulation process is sintered at 800°C to 1450°C. The spheroidization process of thermal plasma is used to introduce argon gas at a predetermined flow rate and convert the output at a predetermined frequency to generate plasma. In the plasma torch, the sintered and obtained silica powder is dispersed at a predetermined feed rate, heated, and melted at a temperature of 2000℃ to the boiling point of silica.

4. Cleaning process

After the spheroidization step, the fine powder adhering to the surface of the spheroidized silica powder is removed.

5. Drying process

After the above cleaning process, the silica powder is dried.


Silicon Dioxide Uses:

Silica is a raw material for manufacturing silicon dioxide glass, quartz glass, water glass, optical fiber, important parts of the electronics industry, optical instruments, handicrafts and refractory materials, and important material for scientific research.

1. Silica is the main ingredient in most glass production. When other minerals melt with silica, the freezing point reduction principle reduces the melting point of the mixture and increases the fluidity. The glass transition temperature of pure SiO2 is about 1475K. When fused silica SiO2 cools quickly, it will not crystallize but solidify into the glass. Therefore, most ceramic glazes are mainly composed of silica.

2. Silica can also be used as an excellent flow promoter additive, mainly as a pressurizing agent, anti-sticking agent, and glidant.

3. Silica is particularly suitable for the granulation of oils and extracts, and it can also use glidants in direct compression.

4. As a disintegrant, silicon dioxide can greatly improve the granules' fluidity, bulk density, and hardness of the prepared tablets. It can be used as an internal desiccant in the manufacture of granules to enhance the stability of the drug.

5. Silica can also be used as a filter aid, scavenger, defoamer, suspending agent, and thickener for liquid preparations.

6. About 95% of the commercial uses of silica (sand) occur in the construction industry, such as the production of concrete (Portland cement concrete).

7. silica plays a certain role in cosmetics due to its light diffusion properties and natural absorption.

8. passivating the silicon surface by thermal oxidation (silicon dioxide) is critical to the semiconductor industry. It is usually used to manufacture metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFET) and silicon integrated circuit chips (using planar technology).

9. Silica can be used to extract DNA and RNA because it can bind to nucleic acids in the presence of chaotropic agents.

10. Since silicon dioxide is a natural silicon oxide, silicon dioxide is more widely used than other semiconductors such as gallium arsenide or indium phosphide.

11. Silicon dioxide can be grown on the surface of silicon semiconductors. The silicon oxide layer can protect the silicon surface during diffusion and can be used as a diffusion mask.

12. Silicon dioxide in food: Silica is utilized by food producers to prevent caking in creams or spices to ensure a consistent flow of powder, or to take in moisture.

13. Silicon dioxide in supplements.
