The fact that carbon can bond with other carbon atoms covalently is why it can form so many compounds. This ability is limitless.
carbon forms so many compounds because of its property "catenation"....
because carbon is carbon dioxide based so you will die.
becuase it have many bonds
omg theres no answer for this
because carbon make take a many compounds
Tens of millions of carbon compounds are known today.
All compounds that have C(carbon) except CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) and CO(Carbon monoxide) are organic. Considering that Carbon is a very versatile element, it can combine to quite a bit of other elements; making them organic compounds.
Carbon can form long chains of covalent bonds.
There are more organic compounds because carbon has no preference on whether it gains or loses electrons.
Carbon atoms can form chains of many carbon atoms by sharing electrons.

Compounds that do not contain carbon and hydrogen would be NaCl, FeCl3, LiCl, and many other compounds. These compounds generally are called inorganic compounds because they lack carbon and hydrogen. Organic compounds must consist of carbon in order to be considered organic.
There are over a million compounds with (all diferent) numbers of carbon atoms in it. So this question has so many answers that it actually has NO answer: NO meaning not one
There are so many, many, many uncountable numbers, surely more than 10 millions different specified or classified compounds.
Life as we know it is made up of many organic compounds. Organic compounds are compounds that are formed by carbon atoms combining with hydrogen. Organic chemistry is the basis of all carbon life forms. All life as we now know it are composed of carbon compounds.
Carbon's tetravalency and ability to bond to itself.
Carbon produces so many different compounds because it forms four chemical bonds per atom, which is very high - almost all other elements form fewer bonds. Silicon can also form four bonds, but because it forms stronger bonds, the resulting compounds do not have the same flexibility as carbon based compounds. Life requires not only a complex variety of compounds, but also requires the ability to alter those compounds as needed.
Coal and many organic compounds are formed from carbon.Plants releases carbon dioxide.
Carbon is able to form so many different compounds because it has four bonding electrons. Meaning that it can bond up to four other atoms per one carbon atom.
Carbon containing compounds are called organic compounds.
fouer valence electrons
Many "organic" compounds are created by living tissue, and living things (on Earth, at any rate) always are based on carbon.
Some carbon compounds do form rings and chains, but many of the simpler ones do not.
Carbon normally forms four covalent bonds in its compounds, not ionic bonds.
