Dimethicone USP Grade Specifications
-(Trimethylsilyl)- -methylpoly[oxy(dimethylsilylene)] CAS 9006-65-9

Dimethicone is a mixture of fully methylated linear siloxane polymers containing repeating units of the formula: [–(CH3)2SiO–]n stabilized with trimethylsiloxy end-blocking units of the formula: [(CH3)3SiO–] wherein n has an average value such that the corresponding nominal viscosity is in a discrete range between 20 and 30,000 centistokes. It contains not less than 97.0 percent and not more than 103.0 percent of polydimethylsiloxane ([–(CH3)2SiO–]n). The requirements for viscosity, specific gravity, refractive index, and loss on heating differ for the several types of Dimethicone, as set forth in the accompanying table.

Identification: Its IR absorption spectrum, obtained as directed in the Assay, exhibits maxima only at the same wavelengths as that of USP Polydimethylsiloxane RS, obtained as directed in the Assay.
Specific gravity: within the limits specified in the accompanying table.
Viscosity: Determine the viscosity of Dimethicone having a nominal viscosity of less than 1000 centistokes at 25 ± 0.1 , using a capillary viscosimeter. Determine the viscosity of Dimethicone having a nominal viscosity of 1000 centistokes or greater at 25 ± 0.1 , using a rotational viscosimeter. The viscosity is within the limits specified in the accompanying table.
Refractive index: within the limits specified in the accompanying table.
Acidity: Dissolve 15.0 g in a mixture of 15 mL of phenylmethane and 15 mL of butyl alcohol, previously neutralized to bromophenol blue and titrate with 0.050 N alcoholic potassium hydroxide to a bromophenol blue endpoint: not more than 0.10 mL is required.
Loss on heating: Preheat an open aluminum vessel (60 mm in diameter and 10 mm high) at 150C for 30 minutes, and allow to cool to room temperature. Tare the vessel, transfer to it about 1 g of Dimethicone, accurately weighed, heat at 150C in a circulating air oven for 2 hours, and allow to come to room temperature in a desiccator before weighing: it loses not more than the maximum percentage of its weight specified in the accompanying table.
Heavy metals: To pass the test (5 microgm per g).
Bacterial endotoxins: To pass the test: equivalent to not more than 10 Endotoxin Units per mL of the Dimethicone taken.
