How Noah Chemicals Innovates the Electronics Industry

Electronics must function at the highest efficiency, or they will produce heat. Low heat levels in electronics result in faster signal transfer and longer-lasting components. Therefore, the purity level requirements of materials used in electronics are extremely high, ranging from 99.99-99.9999% pure and above. Noah Chemicals provides the highest purity materials available for use in electronics, which includes semiconductors, energy cells, and energy systems.

The top ten chemicals used in electronics production are:

  • Aluminum oxide
  • Silicon dioxide
  • Silicon nitride
  • Aluminum nitride
  • Titanium dioxide
  • Tantalum pentoxide
  • Copper doped zinc sulfide
  • Zinc oxide
  • Barium titanate
  • Metal alkoxides

Aluminum Oxide

Aluminum oxide is an electrical insulator with a relatively high thermal conductivity.

Silicon Dioxide

Silicon dioxide (Silica) is a superior electrical insulator, the only native oxide of a common semiconductor that is stable in water and at high temperatures. Due to its unique properties, this material masks common diffusing species, and it can form a nearly perfect electrical interface with its substrate. Silica is one of the most common substances in electronics manufacturing and the Earth’s crust.

Silicon Nitride

Silicon nitride is key to electronics due to its high-level strength and fracture resilience at high temperatures. These electronics are primarily used in:

  • Automotive engines
  • Combustor parts
  • Gas turbines

Aluminum Nitride

A solid nitride of Aluminum, Aluminum nitride’s high thermal conductivity makes it an optimal electrical insulator.

Titanium Dioxide

Titanium dioxide (titania) performs an increasingly wide range of electronic functions. Some of the more prominent functions are that Titanium dioxide can be printed to become a piezo energy harvester. Piezoelectricity is the process of using crystals to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy, or vice versa. Titania can function as dielectrics in capacitors and transistors; and it can also serve as sensitized scaffolds turning light into electricity. When utilized in liquid form and formed as an alkoxide, Titanium dioxide provides an ultra-pure oxide form.

Tantalum Pentoxide

Tantalum pentoxide’s high band gap and dielectric constant makes it an ideal component for many uses in electronics including tantalum capacitors. This material is used in automotive electronics, cell phones, pagers, electronic circuitry, thin-film components, and high-speed tools.

Copper-doped Zinc Sulfide

One of the most important II-VI compound semiconductors, Zinc sulfide is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly compound with good fracture strength and hardness. Adding a suitable activator (aka doping) such as copper to zinc sulfide results in phosphorescence for use in many applications such as cathode ray tubes, x-ray screens, and glow-in-the-dark products.
