Manufacture
Amodimethicone is an amine-functionalized silicone made from dimethicone where the methyl groups along the backbone are replaced with alkylamine groups which become positively charged in aqueous solutions yielding an cationic polymer. Dimethicone is made from dimethyldichlorosilane which is produced by powdered silicon (silicone dioxide) and methyl chloride. Dimethyldichlorosilane is then hydrolyzed to give a hydrolysate of polysiloxanes. In a polymerization reaction with water the polysiloxanes are then polymerized to linear silicone polymers with different chain length (dimethicones).
