Trimethylchlorosilane, now that’s a mouthful to say the least. As uncommon as that name may be to most of us, it’s background and use in our everyday lives is quite common. As what is known as a “pseudo” (or false) halogen, these compounds are synthetic analogues of their naturally occurring counterparts, known as halogens (meaning ‘salt producing’). Comprised of organic minerals or salts, the following elements make up the halogen class:  Fluorine, Bromine, Chlorine, Iodine and Astatine. By synthesizing inorganic compounds nearly identical compounds, Far Chemicals is making sure that the numerous home and industrial applications simplified with the use of halogens can be provided to the public in a safe and mutually cost-effective way.

Applications for Pseudohalogens include:

Simply put, bad bacteria thrive in unsanitary conditions, so it’s important to maintain high standards of cleanliness, whether at home, in food service and especially in the field of medicine.  Fortunately for us, with pseudohalogens, it’s easier than ever before to keep everything clean, from our clothing to simple cuts, dishes, utensils, bath tubs and kitchen counters.

Environmentally Friendly Lighting
More and more, green living is growing in importance and popularity. In order to further this trend, scientists have learned how to safely incorporate pseudohalogens into making incandescent light bulbs better than ever before. The presence of these compounds in a gaseous state allows for more compact and efficient light sources able to provide a better quality of light for much longer than ordinary bulbs.

Modern Medicine
In the treatment and prevention of illnesses, the ability to absorb medications efficiently is key. With the aide of pseudohalogens such as Trimethylchlorosilane, compounds can be modified from their typically water soluble state to a form that is retained within fats, causing a much greater ability for the medications to be utilized by the body.

At Far Chemicals, we recognize the importance of providing safe, quality products at an affordable price. With the wide range of applications they serve us all in our daily lives, we strive to bring convenience to the masses, operating proudly out of Brevard County in beautiful South Florida.
