What are some other elements carbon combines with?
Hi, Carbon can combine with most other atoms to form stable compounds. Most importantly (from a life on earth point of view) it combines with other carbon atoms to form chains and ring structures - these can then combine with Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Oxgen to form the amino acids and then the proteins we are made from - this has allowed carbon based life to develop on earth. With hydrogen (and more carbon) to form the hydrocarbons. With Oxygen to form Carbon Dioxide gas. With Sulphur to form carbon disulphide. With Nitrogen to from cyanide. As a carbonate, it forms limestone rocks. It forms alloys with metals, notably iron to produce steel. It also has many allotropes ( different forms ) it can be diamond, graphite, soot and forms the Nanotubes and fullerines (bucky balls) that will make the nanotech revolution possible) the list is almost endless, Hope these examples have helped, Mike

Oxygen. The C in CO 2 stands for Carbon, the O for oxygen and the 2 to say that there are two oxygen atoms in the carbon dioxide molecule. If there is no 2 or 3 or whatever next to the representation of the atom, this means that there is only one of that atom in the molecule
Yes, absolutely. A molecule of chlorine(Cl 2 ) has only a weak bond, making it very likely to react with surrounding elements to form different compounds. For example, sodium chloride (NaCl) is table salt. Silver chloride (AgCl) was used to develop early photographs and chloroform (CHCl 3 ) is an… anesthetic. Polyvinyl chloride (abbreviated PVC) is used for wire insulation, pipes, signs, and vinyl siding for houses. And then there is liquid bleach, sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), used as a whitening agent and disinfecting agent. When mixed with a specific proportion of ammonia, it forms the poisonous chlorine gas which was used in as a chemical weapon in WWI trench warfare. Chlorine in swimming pools mixed with urea (pee) can form NCl 3 formerly used in tear gas, and which more recently has been indicated as the cause of the link between swimming pools and asthma.

Typically, neon doesn't combine with other elements, but some lab conditions can force it to bond with less noble substances.
Nonmetals combine with other elements in order to achieve a filled valence shell and become stable.
Yes, it can combine with other elements in a mixture, such as in air, where trace amounts of neon can be found. However, under normal circumstances, neon does not bond with other elements to form a compound due to its stable octet electron arrangement.
Neon is a noble gas, so it's oxidation state is zero, so it has no charge.
zinc has to be combined with a nonmetal so that the neutral will equal 0.
Yes, seaborgium can react with other elements as oxygen or halogens, but the chemistry of seaborgium is practically unknown.
elements combine with elements because they want to become the stablest form they can be (which is the noble gases) so they gain/lose electrons to get to being like a noble gas then they are stable and do not react
Beryllium (Be) will combine in a 1-1 ratio with elements from group 16. It will combine in a 1-2 ratio with elements from group 17 (the halogens.) It will combine in a 3-2 ratio with elements from group 15. Examples: beryllium oxide - BeO; beryllium chloride - BeCl 2 ; beryllium nitride - Be 3 N …2 . ( Full Answer )
Silver combines readily with other elements. When silver tarnishes,that is the element reacting with hydrogen sulfide and formingsilver sulfide.
Noble gases are very unreactive; but in special conditions they can react with some elements, for example fluorine. The chemistry of noble gases is known from about 50 years. .
Americium is a reactive metal and can react with the majority of other chemical elements.
The distinctive features of carbon as an element is that it has a valence of four, meaning that it tends to form four chemical bonds (for example, in the compound methane, carbon is bonded to four hydrogen atoms) but the bonds are not as strong as those formed by silicon, which is also an element wi…th a valence of four; as a result, carbon forms the ideal basis for a complex and active form of chemistry known as organic chemistry, which is the basis of all life on Earth, and we suspect, on any other planet. As they used to say on the original Star Trek TV series, human beings are a carbon based life form. ( Full Answer )
Carbon with hydrogen: maximum 4 single bonds Carbon with oxygen: either one or two double bonds with one or twooxygen atoms, or one single bond with a mono-substituted oxygen. Carbon with nitrogen: single, double or triple bonds with onedouble-, mono- or non-substituted nitrogen atom respectively Ca…rbon with carbon: single, double or triple bonds with one triple,double-, mono- substituted carbon atom respectively.

Today only helium is known as a chemical element without stable compounds. Elements that do do combine with other elements are called "inert" or "noble", Gold is an example of a noble metal, platinum is another. Group 18 gases, like helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, radon are noble gases. Th…ey were considered noble because they did not easily form compounds. Chemistry has advanced since the 1960's and that is no longer the case. ( Full Answer )
Well, As Oxygen is a gas, its mollecular structure is unable to combine with many of the common alkali and nobel gasses due to the inequality of the outer electron shell. Although it is difficult, Oxygen in its purest form can be combined with Radium in small quantities, creating RaO. This is used i…n many plastics found in consumer goods. Hope this helps!

The elements in Group 0 - Inert Gases group are all highly unreactive and so don't combine with other elements.
Any element in Group 0 of the Periodic Table (exc. Radon) will not react with any elements as they are the inert gases and highly unreactive.
The Group 0 - Inert Gases group are all (exc. Radon) highly unreactive, and so don't chemcially combine with other elements.
There are some elements that can't become a compound but can become a mixture. OK your question is not completely understood. A compound is made up of 2 or more elements that are chemically combined and can only be separated by chemical means. A compound is formed in a chemical reaction. A mixture i…s 2 or more substances (it doesn't have to be elements) that are phsically combined and can only be separated by physical means. So the answer to your question is not open because your question should be some thing like "Which element(s) does not actively combine with other elements in a compound or mixture?" The answer to that question would be many. Some elements can't come together to form a compound but they can form a mixture perfectly and visa versa. Ans 2. The above answerer has not fully understood the question. The word "combine" defines "a compound" and excludes "a mixture". The phrase "actively combine" refers to those elements which show no spontaneous inclination to combine with any other. These elements were long referred to as "inert", but the name has recently been changed to"noble gases". The reason for their dis-inclination to combine is that in every case the atom's outer electron shell is full; in other words their valency is zero. ( Full Answer )
Carbon reacts quite readily with a wide range of other elements, and because it forms four bonds, it gives us very complicated molecules, and it is considered to be the most important element of biochemistry. The entire field of organic chemistry is often defined as the chemistry of carbon. Also not…e that coal is made mostly of carbon, and it burns quite well, demonstrating its propensity to react with oxygen. ( Full Answer )
Yes, it may form a complex ion having oxidation state +3 with aqua regia, which may be converted into AuCl 3 , directly it may react with Fluorine and chlorine.
Yes. This branch of Chemistry is called Organic Chemistry. Carbon in particular reacts with Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen and the halogens.
i know Yes, uranium can form chemical compounds or alloys with the majority of other elements.
Silicon can be combined with many elements forming chemical compounds as fluorides, chlorides, carbides, nitrides, etc.
Highly unreactive elements that will not chemically combine include: Platinum (Pt) Gold (Au) Helium (He) Argon (Ar) Krypton (Xe) Neon (Ne) The first two are unreactive because they are at the bottom of the metals reactivity series. The rest are unreactive because they are part of the i…nert gases. Second answer: Platinum and gold do react, but sparingly. Helium is the only one of the inert gases that has been shown never to react. The others form compounds (admittedly quite unstable ones). ( Full Answer )
Uranium combine with the majority of other elements; also uranium has alloys with the majority of metals.
Elements that are extremely unreactive include: Platinum (Pt), Gold (Au), Helium (He), Argon (Ar), Xenon (Xe), Krypton (Kr). These are unreactive because: Platinum and Gold are the bottom two elements in the metals Reactivity series. The rest are inert gases which are all unreactive.
Carbon is the key element in making a compound organic. It has a 4+ charge, so, it will react to other elements accordingly
In combination with oxygen, silicon appears in large number of molecules. These include metal silicates in rocks such as feldspar and mica, and as silicon dioxide (silica) in sand, quartz, flint, and the gemstones amethyst and opal.
Ionic Bonding Elements can combine with other elements by ionic bonding, in which one atom gains one or more electrons, forming a negatively charged ion, and the other atom loses one or more electrons, forming a positively charged ion. The oppositely charged ions combine by means of electrostatic …attraction to form an ionic compound. Covalent Bonding Elements combine to form molecules by means of covalent bonding, in which the atoms of both elements share electrons in a covalent bond. ( Full Answer )
yes. water is H2O which is hydrogen mixed with oxegen, and that's just one of a lot of different chemical formulas involving hydrogen.
They form ions They could form ions, but more correctly elements react with other elements by exchanging (or sharing electrons). All elements are not reactive, such as gold and helium. Most reactions require specials conditions to combine. Chemistry of the elements is complex and years of study ar…e needed to understand completely. ( Full Answer )
The nobel gasses, like krypton, can chemically combine with other elements, but only under very extreme conditions.
Yes, of course; there are nearly fifty platinum compounds listed in the 1985 edition of the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics , and probably many more have been discovered since then.
Rubidium is a typical group 1 alkali metal and is highly reactive, and similar to sodium and potassium.
This, technically, is a trick question. A mostly true, useful answer, but not entirely accurate one is to say, that "Organic chemistry is the study of Carbon compounds. Inorganic Chemistry, is the study of everything else." Here's the problem. Organic Chemistry is a highly dense complex study …of all the strange and wonderful properties of carbon that lead it to be the building block of life, and it's end results. Carbon lives a double life, however, and isn't exclusively defined by it's organic strangeness. For example, one of the sub-branches of inorganic chemistry is industrial chemistry. You study that, and discover that carbon is still there, and still doing strange things. Just those strange things (look at diamonds, nano tubes and properties of graphite) are more typical of other elements on the periodic table. So this is Clark Kent carbon, and Organic Chemistry is about Super Man carbon. They are the same thing but operate in different ways. It is true that Organic Chemistry is almost all about carbon, but that doesn't preclude carbon taking various other roles in other branches of chemistry. Why? Because carbon is so common. It can't beat out Hydrogen, naturally, but it is running neck and neck with Nitrogen, which is still insanely common. You can't really do chemistry in the real world for very long without tripping over carbon in some form or compound. I suppose there may be some branch of theoretical Chemistry that attempts to extrapolate properties of a universe without Carbon, but... that's pretty out there. You are unlikely to run into it outside of a sheltered university environment. ( Full Answer )
in nuclear fusion i assume it is theoretically possible to combine any elements but in terms of chemical bonding, no some elements ie noble gases are very nonreactive, though the heavier noble gases do form compounds with oxygen and fluorine.
What characteristic does carbon have that enables it to form more known compounds than all the other elements combined?
It's tetravalent. It forms long chains by the process of catenation , whereby carbon atoms form covalent bonds with other carbon atoms. These include single bonds (as in alkanes), double bonds (at least one in alkenes), or triple bonds (as in alkynes). Other elements can form covalent bonds among …their atoms, but not nearly as many.

Now are known only two hassium compounds: HsO 4 and Na 2 [HsO 4 (OH) 2 ].
Tungsten can combine with other elements, at least oxygen, nitrogen, fluorine, and chloride, to form compounds. Tungsten can also combine with some other metals, notably iron, to form alloys, which are mixtures rather than compounds.
Oxygen. Carbon burns to form carbon dioxide, incomplete combustion with insifficient oxygen will produce carbon monoxide.
Carbon is unique from other elements because it can easily bond with itself. This is because carbon atoms have four valence electrons in their outer shell, allowing covalent bonding to easily occur. Carbon is also very important in biochemistry because it serves as the basis for all four main macrom…olecular compounds in life ( Full Answer )
Elements have a number of electrons in their outer shell of the atom, all elements want to have a full shell and usually form with other atoms to do so. However, Xenon is a noble gas and already has a full outer shell and so does not combine with other elements unless it is made to do so.
Yes it does. Magnesium is most liekly to combine ionically with the group 16 or 17 elements, like Oxygen, Fluorine, Sulfur, Chlorine, etc.
No, it is an element on its own. This is why magnesium is on thePeriodic Table.
We would expect Lawrencium to react with other elements similar to the way scandium or yttrium do, these being in the same column of the periodic table. However, lawrencium is highly radioactive, and most of the isotopes have half-lives in the seconds; the longest lived isotope has a half-life of 4…0 minutes, so that doesn't give chemists much time to work with it.
