Carbon Monoxide

Science / Chemistry / Carbon Monoxide: (CO) A colorless, odorless, poisonous gas produced by incomplete combustion.

Carbonyl

Science / Chemistry / Carbonyl: A divalent group consisting of a carbon atom with a double-bond to oxygen. For example, acetone (CH3-(C=O)-CH3) is a carbonyl group linking two methyl groups. Also refers to a compound of a metal with MORE

Carbons

Health / Dentistry / Carbons: Vitreous (polycrystalline or glassy) or pyrolytic graphitic structures of relatively hard, inert, and stable compounds that are conductors of thermal and electrical energy. Characterized by ionic and MORE

Carbony

Life Style / Coffee / Carbony: An aromatic sensation created by a slightly volatile set of heterocyclic compounds found in coffee's aftertaste that produces either sensations similar to a creosol-like substance or a burnt substance 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
