Chemo's acid secretion is home to microscopic fast replicating monoclinic phylosilicates. These silicon-based micro-organisms attack the central nervous system. Over time, they induce the loss of motor control, paralysis, then death on their victims.

The silicate's primary weakness are electromagnetic shock but the seed cell, if left untouched, can continue to replicate. The Atom and Aquaman faced the silicates when they journeyed into Batman who displayed physical protrusions on his body. After the Atom destroyed the seed cell with a field pressurizer, Batman was healed within seconds.
