CO2 / Carbonic Gas

Carbon dioxide is inert, colorless, odorless and tasteless. In can be easily and safely liquefied, solidified, handled, and stored. In its liquid form, is readily interacts with water to form carbonic acid, or carbonated water, the beginning point for the worldwide beverage industry. In solid form it has a refrigeration value of 246 BTUs per pound - providing twice the cooling capacity of wet ice. It can also be utilized as a gas, where it is commonly used in welding applications.

Disclaimer and references

Carbon dioxide is an atmospheric gas composed of one carbon and two oxygen atoms. One of the best known of chemical compounds, it is frequently called by its formula:

CO 2 (pronunciation: "see oh two")

Carbon dioxide results from the combustion of organic matter if sufficient amounts of oxygen are present. It is alsoproduced by various microorganisms from fermentation and cellularrespiration. Plants utilize carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, using both the carbon and the oxygen to construct carbohydrates. In addition, plants also release oxygen to the atmosphere which is subsequently used forrespiration by heterotrophic organisms, forming a cycle. It is present inthe Earth's atmosphere at a low concentration and acts as a greenhouse gas. It is a major component of the carbon cycle.
