Advanced Silicon Chemistry in Australia: Forming Strong Links with Asia

Abstract

This paper details Australian commercial and academic silicon research. Areas of interest include silicon metal, polysiloxane polymers, copolymers, cyclics, emulsions, microemulsions, silanes, silane coupling agents, sol‐gel chemistry and water‐treatments, porous silicon, polysiloxane degradation, silicon hydrogel contact lenses, silanolate synthesis, siloxane interfacial polymerisation, hydrosilylation, polysiloxane electrolytes for lithium ion batteries, silanes for PBX materials, octafunctionalized polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS), POSS hybrids, sol‐gel hydrogenation catalysts, silane modification of silica, sol‐gel energy storage, silicate grout stabilisation, GeoPolymer concretes, aerogel insulating foams, “Phaco‐Ersatz” Accommodating Gel—Intraocular Lens technologies. Strong collaborative opportunities, in silicon, with Asia, exist with organisations such as: 1) The Asian Silicon Society and 2) The Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) Indonesia.

This paper provides a review of silicon chemistry research conducted in Australia, over many years, and overviews silicon technologies conducted by various companies and corporations in Australia. The paper also identifies new directions for international silicon chemistry research, in particular, in Asia, partnering with organisations such as the Asian Silicon Society and the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) in Indonesia.
