Carbon

Carbon is nonmetallic and tetravalent-making four electrons available to form covalent chemical bonds. The major economic use of carbon other than food and wood is in the form of hydrocarbons, most notably the fossil fuel methane gas and crude oil (petroleum). Crude oil is used by the petrochemical industry to produce, amongst others, gasoline and kerosene, through a distillation process, in refineries. Cellulose is a natural, carbon-containing polymer produced by plants in the form of cotton, linen, and hemp. Cellulose is mainly used for maintaining structure in plants. Commercially valuable carbon polymers of animal origin include wool, cashmere and silk. Plastics are made from synthetic carbon polymers, often with oxygen and nitrogen atoms included at regular intervals in the main polymer chain. The raw materials for many of these synthetic substances come from crude oil. It can form alloys with iron, of which the most common is carbon steel. Graphite is combined with clays to form the 'lead' used in pencils used for writing and drawing. It is also used as a lubricant and a pigment, as a molding material in glass manufacture, in electrodes for dry batteries and in electroplating and electroforming, in brushes for electric motors and as a neutron moderator in nuclear reactors. Gem quality diamond is used in jewelry, and Industrial diamonds are used in drilling, cutting and polishing tools for machining metals and stone. Carbon black is used as the black pigment in printing ink, artist's oil paint and water colours, carbon paper, automotive finishes, India ink and laser printer toner. It is also used as a filler in rubber products such as tyres and in plastic compounds. Carbon acts as a macronutrient for the body, and is thus greatly required.

Carmine

Carmine is a pigment of a bright red color obtained from the carminic acid produced by some scale insects, such as the cochineal and the Polish cochineal, and is used as a general term for a particularly deep red color of the same name. Carmine is used in the manufacture of artificial flowers, paints, crimson ink, rouge, and other cosmetics, and is routinely added to food products such as yogurt and certain brands of juice, most notably those of the ruby-red variety. Carmine can be used as a staining agent in histology, as a Best's carmine to stain glycogen, mucicarmine to stain acidic mucopolysaccharides, and carmalum to stain cell nuclei.Carmine was used in dyeing textiles and in painting since antiquity.

Carmoisine

Carmoisine is a synthetic red food dye from the azo dye group. It usually comes as a disodium salt. Carmoisine is a red to maroon powder. It is used for the purposes where the food is heat-treated after fermentation.

Properties Suppliers
Carthamin

Carthamin is a natural red pigment derived from safflower. It is used as a dye and a food coloring. It is composed of two chalcones; the conjugated bonds being the cause of the red color. It is derived from precarthamin by a decarboxylase.

Properties Suppliers
Castor Oil, Sulfonated

Castor oil, sulfonated is made by adding sulfuric acid to vegetable oils, most notably castor oil. It was the first synthetic detergent after ordinary soap. It is used in formulating lubricants, softeners, and dyeing assistants. It is commonly used in shampoos and bath oils because it helps solublise or emulsify fragrant oils and essential oils so they will disperse in water.

Properties Suppliers
Ceraglo

Ceraglo is a phosphate based water stain. Ceraglo is a free-flowing acidic liquid concentrate intended for dilution with hot or cold water. It is safe and pleasant to use and at the same time highly efficient for the removal of rust and scale by chemical action. Ceraglo also contains powerful wetting agents and solvents which enable it to leach dirt which has penetrated the surface being treated. It has been specially formulated so that it has no unpleasant smell, nor will it leave any after use. Ceraglo is not a degreaser.

Chitin

Chitin is a long-chain polymer of a N-acetylglucosamine, a derivative of glucose, and is found in many places throughout the natural world. It is the main component of the cell walls of fungi, the exoskeletons of arthropods such as crustaceans and insects, the radulas of mollusks and the beaks of cephalopods, including squid and octopuses. Chitin may be compared structurally to the polysaccharide cellulose and functionally to the protein keratin. Chitin has also proven useful for several medical and industrial purposes. It is used as an additive to thicken and stabilize foods and pharmaceuticals. It also acts as a binder in dyes, fabrics, and adhesives. Industrial separation membranes and ion-exchange resins can be made from chitin.

Properties Suppliers
Chloranil

Chloranil is used as a fungicide. It is also used as an oxidizing agent in the organic synthesis especially for dye intermediates and vulcanization agent.

Properties Suppliers
Chlorinated Polypropylene

Chlorinated polypropylene is resin made by polypropylene through modification.It can be melted in organic solvent like toluene. It is widely use as adhesion promoter, printing ink binder and primer.It is also used in plastic products with its good film forming and luster.
