|In chemistry, a silicate is any member of a family of anions consisting of silicon and oxygen, usually with the general formula [SiO(42x)4-x]n, where 0 x < 2. The family includes orthosilicate SiO44 (x=0), metasilicate SiO23 (x=1), and pyrosilicate Si2O67 (x=0.5, n=2). The name is also used for any salt of such anions, such as sodium metasilicate; or any ester containing the corresponding chemical group, such as tetramethyl orthosilicate.Silicate anions are often large polymeric molecules with an extense variety of structures, including chains and rings (as in polymeric metasilicate [SiO23]n), double chains (as in [Si2O25]n, and sheets (as in [Si2O25]n.In geology and astronomy, the term silicate is used to mean silicate minerals, ionic solids with silicate anions; as well as rock types that consist predominantly of such minerals.
