Silicates Production Cost Analysis 2021

A silicate is a member of a family of anions consisting of silicon and oxygen. The name is also utilised for any salt of anions, like sodium metasilicate; or any ester composed of the corresponding chemical group, like tetramethyl orthosilicate. These anions are often large polymeric molecules with a wide variety of structures.

In geology and astronomy, the term silicate refers to the silicate minerals, which are ionic solids with silicate anions, and rock types that are composed predominantly of minerals. The term also involves minerals where aluminium or other tetravalent atoms replace some of the silicon atoms, as in the aluminosilicates. These silicates are found most in Earth's crust as well as the mantle, along with the other terrestrial planets, rocky moons, and asteroids.

Silicates containing alkali cations and small or chain-like anions, like the sodium ortho- or metasilicate, are fairly miscible in water. They form several solid hydrates after being crystallised from solution. Soluble sodium silicates and mixtures are known as water glass and are crucial as commerical as well as household chemicals.
