27 Examples of Carbon Materials

 ,
Carbon materials are useful substances that are composed completely or partially of the element carbon. This includes minerals such as diamonds, organic materials such as wood, synthetic materials such as plastics and advanced materials such as carbon fiber. Generally speaking, carbon is known as a strong and hard material due to its strong carbon-to-carbon bonds. It also has valuable material properties. For example, carbon has the highest melting point of the elements. The following are common carbon materials.
Activated carbon
Bamboo
Bioplastic
Carbon black
Carbon fiber
Carbon fiber reinforced polymers
Carbon foams
Carbon nanofibers
Carbon nanorods
Carbon nanotubes
Carbon quantum dots
Carbon reinforced concrete
Carbon steel
Carbonate minerals such as magnesite
Charcoal
Diamond
Food
Graphene
Graphite
Leather
Limestone
Paper
Plastics
Resin
Rubber
Silicon carbide
Wood
The carbon in steel is a low percentage, often below 1%.
As life on Earth is carbon based, natural organic materials are also generally carbon based.
Materials manufactured with petrochemicals are generally carbon based.
Many of the strongest known advanced materials are carbon based.
There are large number of composite materials that contain carbon such as carbon reinforced plastic.
