CARBON

Sixth element (Z=6) in the periodic table, has 6 protons, often described as the basis of life on land because of its chemical properties, has potential for use with silicon as a low-activation structural material for fusion reactors, in the form silicon carbide. Carbon tiles are often used in plasma-facing components because its low Z makes carbon a relatively glorious impurity. It is also useful as a neutron moderator. See: low-activation materials, plasma-facing components. Abbreviation: C
