- Of or relating to carbon.

Car*bon"ic (?), a. [Cf. F.
carbonique. See Carbon.] (Chem.) Of,
pertaining to, or obtained from, carbon; as, carbonic
Carbonic acid (Chem.), an acid
H2CO3, not existing separately, which,
combined with positive or basic atoms or radicals, forms
carbonates. In common language the term is very generally applied
to a compound of carbon and oxygen, CO2, more
correctly called carbon dioxide. It is a colorless, heavy,
irrespirable gas, extinguishing flame, and when breathed destroys
life. It can be reduced to a liquid and solid form by intense
pressure. It is produced in the fermentation of liquors, and by
the combustion and decomposition of organic substances, or other
substances containing carbon. It is formed in the explosion of
fire damp in mines, and is hence called after damp; it is
also know as choke damp, and mephitic air. Water
will absorb its own volume of it, and more than this under
pressure, and in this state becomes the common soda water of the
shops, and the carbonated water of natural springs. Combined with
lime it constitutes limestone, or common marble and chalk. Plants
imbibe it for their nutrition and growth, the carbon being
retained and the oxygen given out. -- Carbonic
oxide (Chem.), a colorless gas, CO, of a
light odor, called more correctly carbon monoxide. It is
almost the only definitely known compound in which carbon seems
to be divalent. It is a product of the incomplete combustion of
carbon, and is an abundant constituent of water gas. It is fatal
to animal life, extinguishes combustion, and burns with a pale
blue flame, forming carbon dioxide.
