In chemistryacarbideis a compound composed ofcarbonand a less electronegativeelement. Carbides can be generally classified by chemical bonding type as follows: (i) salt-like, (ii)covalent compounds, (iii)interstitial compounds, and (iv) "intermediate"transition metalcarbides. Examples includecalcium carbide,silicon carbide,tungsten carbide(often called simplycarbidewhen referring to machine tooling), andcementite,each used in key industrial applications. The naming of ionic carbides is not systematic.
