Dear  student 
Carbon has several allotropes, or different forms in which it can exist. These allotropes include graphite and diamond, which have very different properties.
Despite carbon’s ability to make 4 bonds and its presence in many compounds, it is highly unreactive under normal conditions.
Carbon exists in 3 main isotopes: 12C, 13C, 14C. 14C is radioactive and used in dating carbon-containing samples (radiometric dating).

The physical properties of this element vary according to its allotropes. The two major allotropes are diamond and graphite. These two have almost opposing physical properties.

  • Whereas diamond is transparent and has no colour, graphite is opaque and black
  • Diamond is the hardest substance known to man, graphite is soft and spongy in texture
  • Now diamond cannot conduct electricity at all, graphite is a very good conductor of electricity
  • Both allotropic elements are solid, non-gaseous
  • Also both diamond and graphite are insoluble in water
  • It does not melt when heated, it sublimes which is it turns to gaseous forms
