A Case Study Component of
Heat and Chemical Resistant Silicone Rubber
National Science Foundation supported curriculum development project.
I have been a chemist since the early 1950's. When I started to write this ChemCases unit, I reviewed the inorganic silicate chemistry first. I hadn't studied silicates in about 40 years but I remembered a lot of it. And I knew some facts about the origin of silicones, about their connection to electrical generation, about Eugene Rochow. But I had to study and do more research on these topics. That is the process of understanding and applying and evaluating. I followed the same pathway you will follow in understanding and evaluating this material. I did just a little bit every day and finally I thought I had mastered the material sufficiently to write this case.
So proceed to the concept
map that takes you through this case study.
