About this book


This volume, written by 25 experts from industry and research, provides a thorough overview of commercially important and environmentally mobile organosilicon materials. It outlines the structure, properties and applications of the four most significant material classes, and summarizes their environmental entry, transport, fate and impact. Readers now have access in one volume to structure, properties, manufacturing, environmental fate and effects of organosilicon compounds and to legislation governing their use.
