If there is one gas, chemical compound that has dramatically risen in prominence in the last two decades, it has been carbon di-oxide, owing to its high global warming potential.
Mind you, it is present as only a small portion of the atmospheric air (about 0.04%) and yet it has been able to create so much fear and apprehension.
But apart from information on CO2’s greenhouse gas effect, how much do we really know about this gas which is so deceptively simple?
For most of us, we probably know a bit about it from our school chemistry lessons. And for some, perhaps a bit more if they are working in the environmental or chemical industry.
But CO2 is actually quite a fascinating gas. There are so many dimensions to it that most of us simply are not aware of. Some of the aspects about this gas are quite surprising and truly remarkable.
While knowledge of many of these aspects could be just fun, getting to know about some of CO2’s properties, characteristics and uses could even help some of you come up with new ideas on how to deal with it.
Whoever you are, whatever you do, you will find it interesting and useful to know a lot more about CO2 from the recently launched guide – All about CO2 – answers to 100+ questions on CO2
