what is the preparation of silicones

Silicones are polymers that are having large molecules composed of many repeated sub-units.
The preparation of silicones is carried out by the hydrolysis of dialkyldichlorosilanes or diaryldichlorosilanes. These dichlorosilanes are prepared by passing the vapours of RCl or ArCl over silicon at 570K with the catalyst copper.
