How does carbon bond with other atoms?

Carbon has a number of unique properties that influence how it behaves and how it bonds with other atoms: 1 ) Carbon has four valence electrons. Carbon can thus form a maximum of four bonds with other atoms as depicted in Figure 1. 2 ) Carbon can bond strongly with other carbon atoms forming single […]

Carbon & its bonding, allotropes, Physical Nature & Compounds

Carbon is non-metal. In nature, it occurs in its pure form as diamond and graphite. When fuels burn, the carbon in them reacts with oxygen to form carbon dioxide. Carbon compounds hold the key to plant and animal life on the earth. Carbon circulates through air, plants, animals, and soil by means of complex reactions. […]
