Carbon has the unique ability to link with other carbon atoms to form complex chains and rings. This property leads to an almost infinite number of carbon compounds, the most common being those containing carbon and hydrogen. The isotopes carbon-13 and carbon-14 are used extensively as tracers in biochemical research, and in biological encryption apparatus.
