Ammonium Silicofluoride

  • Ammonium fluorosilicate (also known as ammonium hexafluorosilicate, ammonium fluosilicate or ammonium silicofluoride) has the formula (NH4)2SiF6.
  • It is a toxic chemical, like all salts of fluorosilicic acid.
  • Ammonium silicofluoride is a water insoluble silicon source for use in oxygen-sensitive applications, such as metal production. 
  • In extremely low concentrations (ppm), fluoride compounds are used in health applications.
  • Fluoride compounds also have significant uses in synthetic organic chemistry.
