Silicon Dioxide Formula

Silicon Dioxide is also referred to as Silica and is represented using the chemical formula SiO2. Silica is the major constitute of sand and found in many living organisms. It is formed by exposing silicon surface to oxygen. Silicon dioxide is added to processed food to keep the foods fresh. It is a sufficient nutrient for healthy bones, skins, hairs and nails.

When humans come in direct contact to silica in eyes, it causes red and watery eyes, when comes in contact with skin, it causes irritation and itching. Silicon Dioxide contains extremely high melting point and hence used in the manufacturing of electronic appliances where high heat is produced.
