Colorless transparent liquid
Activated dimethicone, a mixture of polydimethylsiloxanes and silicon dioxide (sometimes called simethicone), is often used in over-the-counter drugs as an antifoaming agent and carminative. PDMS is used variously in the cosmetic and consumer product industry as well. PDMS is added to many cooking oils (as an antifoaming agent) to prevent oil splatter during the cooking process.
PDMS is a common surfactant and is a component of defoamers, which are used to suppress the formation of foams. Dimethicone is also the active silicone fluid in automotive viscous limited slip differentials and couplings. PDMS is commonly used as a stamp resin in the procedure of soft lithography, making it one of the most common materials used for flow delivery in microfluidics chips.
