The field of organosilane chemistry has undergone explosive growth in the past thirty years, SiSiB organosilanes have many applications in pharmaceuticals, most notably as derivatization reagents, blocking / protective agents, intermediates in organic synthesis and reducing agents.
Hydrogen silanes and silxoanes contain Si-H bonds, such as triethylsilanes, triisopropylsilane and 1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisiloxane are highly selective reducing agents for the reduction of carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom multiple bonds, as well as carbon-hydroxy and carbon-halogen single bonds.
Organosilanes by SiSiB silicone factory can be used as both ionic and free-radical reducing agents. Those organosilanes and their reaction byproducts are safer and easier to handle and dispose.
SiSiB® PC5603, Triethylsilane, CAS 617-86-7, is the hydride source in many selective reductions among which is the reduction of acetals and ketals to ethers. In combination with an alkoxysilane, triethylsilane can bring about the reductive etherification of ketones or aldehydes. SiSiB® PC5603 is used as silylating agent for derivatization of alcohols, phenols etc.
SiSiB® PC5031 (Trimethoxysilane), SiSiB® PC5032 (Triethoxysilane), SiSiB® PC5121 (Methyldimethoxysilane) and SiSiB® PC5122 (Methyldiethoxysilane) are key intermediates for silane coupling agents.
SiSiB® PC9400, Tetramethydisiloxane, CAS No. 3277-26-7 is used in for Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) of glass on a variety of substrates at low temperature. It is also employed in reductive halogenation of aldehydes and epoxides. In addition to being a reducing agent, its main industrial use is as an end-capper in the synthesis of high molecular weight hydride-terminated polydimethylsiloxane.
