Benefits of Hexamethyldisiloxane

CSCPL make superiority products

Production of reaction intermediates are an advanced feature of the chemical industry. To make pure quality intermediates and compound and chemicals are a necessary, as any impurity or low-grade quality will completely ruin the chemical process. The manufacturing process of these compounds is also essential, hence companies continuously conducts research and updates their manufacturing process to provide the customer with the optimum quality of product that can be achievable. Chemcon Specialty Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. is such a company that invests on making quality products by staying up-to-date with the recent engineering processes and the newly developed machineries.

Benefits and uses of Hexamethyldisiloxane

As stated, Hexamethyldisiloxane (HMDSO) is an organic silicon compound which is primarily used as a solvent and as a reagent in organic synthesis. However, apart from these HMDSO is also used for several other purposes. They are:

1. HMDSO is an internal standard for calibrating a chemical shift in 1H NMR spectroscopy. The purpose of using HMDSO is because it can be easily handled as it is less volatile than the usual tetramethylsilane, yet displays only a singlet near 0 ppm.

2. HDMSO is used to crystallize highly lipophilic compounds since it carries a poorer solvating power than alkanes.

3. This compound is also used in manufacturing liquid bandages that comes in spray format, like a cavilon spray. These generally protect damaged skin from irritation caused by other bodily fluids.

4. HDMSO acts as a good anti-adhesive agent and hence, they are used to remove any residue left by medical tapes, bandages and any other adhesive materials.

5. Presently, studies are conducted to use HDMSO in making low-k dielectric materials for the semi conductor industries.

6. HDMSO is a highly hydrophobic compound, so it exhibits high gas solubility. This is the reason that it possesses a strong nuclear magnetic resonance spin lattice relaxation rate (R1) response to changes in oxygen tension (pO2). For the presence of this quality, HDMSO has been used as a reporter molecule in the process of measuring tissue oxygen tension (pO2).

7. When HDMSO is directly injected in the tissue, it can generate maps of tumor and muscle oxygenation dynamics with respect to the hyperoxic gas breathing challenge.

Hexamethyldisiloxane is one of the most sought out silicon compounds in the market. Chemcon Specialty Chemicals Pvt. Ltd. is a revered Hexamethyldisilazane Manufacturer in India and you can be assured that you will be receiving top quality silicon compounds.
