Oxygen Family

The Carbon Family represents Group 4A of the periodic table. 

The Carbon Family

Group 4A shows a diverse range in chemical and physical properties because it contains all three classifications for elements: nonmetals, metalloids and metals. 

Concept #1: The Carbon Family

Allotropism is the ability of an element to exist in multiple forms while in the same physical state. This is common with the element carbon. 

Carbon is a rather unique element on the periodic table because it is able to covalently bond with itself. 

Concept #2: Carbon Chemistry

The Silicon Chemistry

The chemistry of silicon is dominated by the formation of silicon-oxygen bonds. 

Concept #3: Silicon Chemistry
