silicon dioxide

[′sil·ə·kən dī′äk‚sīd]
(inorganic chemistry)
SiO2 Colorless, transparent crystals, soluble in molten alkalies and hydrofluoric acid; melts at 1710°C; used to make glass, ceramic products, abrasives, foundry molds, and concrete.

silica, silicon dioxide

A white or colorless substance, nearly insoluble in water and in all acids except hydrofluoric; extremely hard; fuses to a colorless amorphous glass.

silicon dioxide

(SiO2) A hard, glassy mineral found in materials such as rock, quartz, sand and opal. In metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) chip fabrication, silicon dioxide is used to create the insulation layer between the metal gates of the top layer and the silicon elements below. See silica gel.
