Polysilicone-15
Polysilicone-15 (INCI) is an organic compound used in hair products like shampoos, conditioners, hair sprays, pomades and color treatment products to absorb UVB radiation. In the EU, it is also approv...
Rosickýite
Rosickyite is a rare native element mineral that is a polymorph of sulfur. It crystallizes in the monoclinic crystal system and is a high temperature, high density polymorph. It occurs as soft, colorl...
Polymethylhydrosiloxane
Polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS) is a polymer with the general structure -(CH3(H)Si-O)-. It is used in organic chemistry as a mild and stable reducing agent easily transferring hydrides to metal centers...
Sulfur
Sulfur or sulphur (see spelling differences) is a chemical element with symbol S and atomic number 16. It is an abundant, multivalent non-metal. Under normal conditions, sulfur atoms form cy...
Poly(dichlorophosphazene)
Poly(dichlorophosphazene), also called dichlorophosphazine polymer or phosphonitrilechloride polymer, is a chemical compound with formula (PNCl2)n. It is an inorganic (hence carbon-free) polymer, wh...
Polydimethylsiloxane
Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) belongs to a group of polymeric organosilicon compounds that are commonly referred to as silicones. PDMS is the most widely used silicon-based organic polymer, and is parti...
Polythiazyl
Polythiazyl (polymeric sulfur nitride), (SN)x, is an electrically conductive, gold- or bronze-colored polymer with metallic luster. It was the first conductive inorganic polymer discovered, and was al...
Polysulfide
Polysulfides are a class of chemical compounds containing chains of sulfur atoms. There are two main classes of polysulfides: anions and organic polysulfides. Anions have the general formula Sn. These...
Silicon sulfide
Silicon sulfide is the inorganic compound with the formula SiS2. Like the silicon dioxide, this material is polymeric, but it adopts a 1-dimensional structure quite different from the usual forms of ...
Venturamide
The venturamides are cyclic peptides isolated from Oscillatoria, a Panamanian marine cyanobacterium. They have anti-malarial activity, and are the first peptides with this activity to have been found ...
PDMS stamp
PDMS stamps are pieces of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), a silicone, that have been patterned usually against a master to form a relief pattern used in soft lithography. This PDMS stamp can be used in e...
Geopolymer cement
This article is a development of the main article Geopolymer. From a terminological point of view, geopolymer cement is a binding system that hardens at room temperature, like regular Portland cement....
Roussin's red salt
Roussin’s Red Salt is the inorganic compound with the formula K2[Fe2S2(NO)4]. This metal nitrosyl was first described by Zacharie Roussin in 1858, making it the first synthetic iron-sulfur cluster.
Inorganic polymer
Inorganic polymers are polymers with a skeletal structure that does not include carbon atoms. Polymers containing inorganic and organic components are named hybrid polymers. One of the best known exam...
Geopolymers
