Alkyl Modified Siloxane Manufacturer introduces HMDSO's innovation.
HMDSO is currently being researched to manufacture low-k dielectric materials for the semiconductor industry by PECVD (plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition).
HMDSO has been used as a reporter molecule to measure tissue oxygen tension (pO2). HMDSO is highly hydrophobic and has high gas solubility, so it has a strong nuclear magnetic resonance spin-lattice relaxation rate (R1) for changes in pO2. Molecular symmetry provides a single NMR signal. Direct injection into tissue has been used to generate tumor and muscle oxygenation kinetic maps related to hyperoxic gas breathing challenges.
