Silicones currently remain as a relatively new polymer material
class that has surpassed numerous benchmarks in regards to
functionality, applicability, and finally, costs. This paper aims to
provide a comprehensive review of the current standing of the
multifunctional silicone field. Namely, discussion regarding the
discovery, chemical structure, applications, and future work will
be carried out to provide the reader with a fundamental understanding
of the topic at hand. Nonetheless, with such a background
established, readers may begin to develop the necessary
mindset in incorporating the silicone polymer material class within
the fields of electronics, composites, and biomaterials.
