Respiration of crystalline silica has long been recognized as a causative agent for silicosis, a form of pulmonary fibrosis. However, the exact etiology remains to be learned. As part of a larger study, silica is being considered from a computational perspective. Calculations of Si(OH)4' Si2O(OH)6' Si3O2 (OH)8', Si4O3(OH)10' Si5O4 (OH)12' and Si8O7 (OH)18 were performed with HF/6- 311+G(d,p), MP2/6-31G(d), and B3LYP/6-31G(d) methods. This poster will present structural and electronic parameters from these calculations.
