Carbon Dioxide

Science / Chemistry / Carbon Dioxide: (CO_2) A colorless, odorless gas produced by respiration and combustion of carbon-containing fuels.

Carbon

Science / Chemistry / Carbon: An element with atomic number 6. Carbon is a nonmetal found in all organic compounds. Carbon occurs naturally as diamond, graphite, and buckminsterfullerene. MORE

Carbonic Maceration

Life Style / Wine / Carbonic Maceration: Whole, uncrushed grapes are fermented in a sealed vat containing a layer of carbon dioxide. This results in fruity, soft and distinct red wines. These wines have little tannin and are immediately drin MORE

Carbonic Acid

Science / Geology / Carbonic Acid: A weak acid (H2CO3) that forms from the reaction of water and carbon dioxide. Most rain water is a very weak carbonic acid solution formed by the reaction of rain with small amounts of carbon dioxide MORE

Carbon (C)

Science / Periodic Table of Elements / Carbon (C): Atomic number: 6, Atomic mass: 12.011 g.mol -1, Electronegativity: 2.5, Density: 2.2 g.cm-3 at 20°C, Melting point: 3652 °C, Boiling point: 4827 °C, Vanderwaals radius: 0.091 nm, Ionic radius: 0.26 MORE

Carbon Sequestration

Business / Agriculture / Carbon Sequestration: Retention of carbon in ways that prevent or delay its emission to the atmosphere as carbon dioxide. This may help mitigate climate change by reducing the amount in the atmosphere. Silvicultural practi MORE

Carbon Monoxide (Co)

Business / Real Estate / Carbon Monoxide (Co): A colorless, odorless gas that occurs as a byproduct of burning such fuels as wood, oil and natural gas due to incomplete combustion. MORE
