Basic properties :

Ÿ Silicon material is a semi-conductor.
Ÿ Its electrical conductivity is a lot inferior than metal ones.

ŸIt is not soluble in water (except at high temperature).

Ÿ Silicon is attacked by hydrofluoric acid (HF) or mixed hydrofluoric and nitric (HNO3) depending on its phase.
Ÿ The electrical conductivity of semi-conductor is between the insulators ones, and metal ones.

Applications :

Ÿ Semi-conductors

Ÿ Photovoltaïc

Ÿ Mechanical components

Ÿ Aerospatial
