Allotropes and Amorphous Forms of Carbon
Allotropes and amorphous forms of
Diamond, graphite and charcoal: structure, physical properties and uses (relate uses to structure and physical properties)
Chemical properties of carbon
Consider combustion, reaction with acids and reducing action
Preparation and properties of Carbon (IV) oxide (carbon dioxide)
(Relate methods of collection to the properties of the gas)
Reactions of the gas with water, calcium hydroxide and alkalis.
Uses of carbon(IV) oxide (carbon dioxide)
Preparation and properties of carbon(II) oxide (carbon monoxide)
Preparation of carbon(II) oxide (carbon monoxide). Physical properties.
Chemical properties; combustion, reducing action, poisonous nature such as car exhausts fumes and charcoal fire
Note: only theoretical treatment required because of its poisonous nature
Carbonate, and hydrogen carbonates
Action of heat and dilute acids on some carbonatates and hydrogen carbonates
Production and manufacture of sodium carbonate (Magadi Soda Company and solvay process)
Note: Use simple scheniajic diagrams to illustrate °lvay process.
Importance of carbon and its oxides
Soft drinks manufacture
The effects of Carbon(IV) oxide (carbon dioxide) and carbon(Il) oxide (carbon monoxide) on the environment
