What are some things that contain carbon?

Wood contains carbon because it comes from a plant that once completed photosynthesis, taking in carbon dioxide to produce glucose and build its cell walls out of cellulose. Plastic is derived from petroleum, which contains hydrocarbons, compounds composed entirely of hydrogen and carbon.

What are the elements that contain carbon?

Carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and other chlorinated hydrocarbons damage the nervous system. Among organic compounds the most toxic are derivatives that contain the halogen elements (fluorine, chlorine, bromine, and iodine), sulfur, selenium, tellurium, nitrogen, phosphorus, arsenic, lead, and mercury.

What is the type of element of carbon?

Carbon occurs naturally as anthracite (a type of coal), graphite, and diamond. More readily available historically was soot or charcoal. Ultimately these various materials were recognised as forms of the same element.
