A chemical-mechanical polishing composition includes colloidal silica abrasive particles dispersed in a liquid carrier having a pH in a range from about 1.5 to about 7. The colloidal silica abrasive particles include an aminosilane compound or a phosphonium silane compound incorporated therein. The composition may be used to polish a substrate including a silicon oxygen material such as TEOS.

A chemical mechanical polishing composition for polishing a substrate having a tungsten layer includes a water based liquid carrier, a colloidal silica abrasive dispersed in the liquid carrier and having a permanent positive charge of at least 6 mV, an amine compound in solution in the liquid carrier, and an iron containing accelerator. A method for chemical mechanical polishing a substrate including a tungsten layer includes contacting the substrate with the above described polishing composition, moving the polishing composition relative to the substrate, and abrading the substrate to remove a portion of the tungsten from the substrate and thereby polish the substrate.
