Silicon: Chemical properties and role in Architecture and Construction Silicon is an electropositive metalloid that is the highest in quantity in the earth’s crust. It is brittle and with a marked metallic luster. Being a group IV element, it has a valency of four, although, in some cases, it may depict bivalent properties. The common chemical behavior that it shows is exhibited when it is electropositive.help for dissertation writing In its more complex structures, it may bond with other elements to yield hexa-coordinated or penta-coordinated compounds. Isotope Silicon-28 is the most abundant with a percentage of 92.2%, Silicon-29 follows with 4.7% and Silicon-30 constitutes the rest (Schmidt, Wittemann, & Gosele, 2010). Silicon-29 is the only isotope used for spectroscopic studies. The majority of the natural isotopes are stable and do not undergo any radioactive decay as opposed to the artificially generated ones that frequently decay to attain stability. ...
