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.
