Silicon dioxide, an aa kent as silica (frae the Laitin silex), is a chemical compoond that is a dioxide o silicon wi the chemical formula SiO2. It haes been kent syne auncient times. Silica is maist commonly foond in naitur as quartz, as well as in various livin organisms,[2] Silica is ane o the maist complex an maist abundant faimilies o materials, existin baith as several minerals an bein produced synthetically. Notable examples include fused quartz, crystal, fumed silica, silica gel, an aerogels. Applications range frae structural materials tae microelectronics tae components uised in the fuid industry.
