    Lets assume there exists a silicon-based life:
    #1. what are the most common chemical reactions that we
    # would observe
    in a silicon-based life?
    #2. What are the candidate substances for getting oxidized
    # or reduced
    in order for life to get carried on with?
    #3.What are the important building blocks of such life?
    #4. What sort of chain could possibly have the same task
    # as a DNA
    #5. What temperature range would such life sorm at?
    Also, could you introduce me to possible book or references
    which could further explain this topic ? Thank you
