Carbon is basically a chemical element. It is from group 14 of the periodic table. Carbon is non-metallic in nature. Carbon exists in many forms as there are several allotropes of carbon such as graphite, diamond etc.

The chemical properties of Carbon are as follows:

- It has the ability to act as a connecting block in a chemical Mechano set.
- It has the ability to make covalent bonds which allows it to create carbon chains of different sizes and lengths.
- It can also connect to non-carbon atoms to form compounds.
- When a carbon atoms connects with a hydrogen atom, the carbon chain comes to an end.

           Chemically carbon is not very reactive at ordinary temperature. Its valency is four & forms compounds by covalent bonding. The properties of carbon except diamond & graphite all have similar properties and diamond & graphite as comparing to the other forms are less reactive...           1.Carbon  is unique in its ability to form bonds with itself & give long chains and rings. This property is known as Catenation.           2.Carbon combines directly with elements at high temperature.                                   3C + 4AL------>Al4C3           3.All forms of carbon in excess of oxygen to produce CO2.                                      C + O2------>CO2           4.At high temperature carbon reduces the oxides of less reactive metals to produce metals. Carbon itself gets oxidized to CO2 or CO.                               2ZnO + C------>2Zn + CO2           5.When carbon is heated with concentrated sulphuric acid or nitric acid corresponding oxides are formed & carbon is oxidized to CO2.                             C + 4HNO3------>2H2O + 4NO2 + CO2

Carbon are less likely to form ions but they are likely to share electrons to form covalent bonds, and have a maximum oxidation state that is same as the group number of the element. It is a non-metal and tends to gain electrons and form negative ions. It has a charge of +4 and is in the group IV in period 2.
