carbon reaction
« on: January 10, 2007, 08:42:47 PM »
hi
does any one knows an element or a molecule with 2 or more links that react with carbon in room temperature?
thanks ;D

What's a molecule with a "two links"?

like oxygen has 2 links carbon has 4 links hydrogen has 1 link .

So you are basically asking that if anything besides hydrogen will bond with carbon, at or around room temperature?

If so:

When you say carbon, do you mean pure carbon as in graphite, or can it be a hydrocarbon such as methane?

carbon as an element one molecule with 4 empty bonds
thanks

Carbon does not exist in that form, that is to highly unstable. So your answer would be yes, carbon will react with elemental carbon at room temperature to form the many allotrops of carbon, most likely graphite.

You must realize that while the periodic table is a list of the chemical properties of the elements, most do not exist in that form in nature. A carbon with nothing attached to it is highly reactive. It would react with more carbon or the oxygen in the air.

Check in textbooks, probably F2 reacts with carbon at room temperature

thanks guys it really helps.  ;D
1 more question.
does fluorine have to use its two bonds to connect to carbon or, can one bond connect to carbon and one to another molecule?
thanks

Flourine has 7 valence electrons. Why would it have "2 bonds?" Think about the octet rule.

When you put CaC2 into the lake, the fish will die. Why?

You have to show that you have tried.

He means show you have tried figuring out the reaction....not actually killing the fish!
