sil·i·cone

 (sĭl′ĭ-kōn′)
n.
Any of a large group of oligomers and polymers based on the structural unit R2SiO, where R is an organic group, characterized by wide-range thermal stability, high lubricity, extreme water repellence, and physiological inertness and used in adhesives, lubricants, protective coatings, paints, electrical insulation, synthetic rubber, and prosthetic replacements for body parts.

silicone

(ˈsɪlɪˌkəʊn)
n
(Elements & Compounds) chem
a. any of a large class of polymeric synthetic materials that usually have resistance to temperature, water, and chemicals, and good insulating and lubricating properties, making them suitable for wide use as oils, water-repellents, resins, etc. Chemically they have alternate silicon and oxygen atoms with the silicon atoms bound to organic groups
b. (as modifier): silicone rubber.
See also siloxane

sil•i•cone

(ˈsɪl ɪˌkoʊn)

n.
any of a number of polymers containing alternate silicon and oxygen atoms, whose properties are determined by the organic groups attached to the silicon atoms, and that are fluid, resinous, rubbery, extremely stable in high temperatures, and water-repellent: used as adhesives, lubricants, and hydraulic oils.
[1905–10]

sil·i·cone

(sĭl′ĭ-kōn′)
Any of a class of chemical compounds consisting of long chains of organic radicals that are each attached to silicon and oxygen atoms. Silicones are used to make adhesives, lubricants and synthetic rubber.

Addition curable silicone resins are known to be cross-linked semi-inorganic polymers with the Si-O-Si chains as backbones and some organic groups as side chains, which possess combined properties of both organic and inorganic materials, such as low dielectric constant and loss, good resistance to heat, solvents, weathering, and radiation (1-3).
