Is known as an Isomer. ==== Answer 2 An isomer is a variation of a compound with a different chemical structure. Carbon, by itself, of course is an element and not a compound. Thus I believe that this is known as an allotrope of carbon and not an isomer. Graphite and diamond are allotropes of carbon as the arrangement of the atoms differs.
Why can carbon substances have have very different properties?

How can butane and isobutane both have the formula C4H10?
The molecules have different structures, that is, they atoms in the two compounds are bonded in a different arrangement, even though the atoms themselves are the same. A molecule of butane is a molecule with four carbon atoms in a chain. The two carbon at the end of the chain are bonded to three hydrogen atoms and those in the middle are each bonded to two. A molecule of isobutane consists of a central carbon atom bonded to a single hydrogen atom and three carbon atoms. Each of those three carbon atoms is additionally bonded to three hydrogen atoms.
