Carbonic oxide


  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • 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.

We note that the dominant components of interstellar ice mantles are typically H2O, NH3 , CO, CO2 , and CH3OH (Charnley and Rodgers 2008), which suggests carbon oxide formation in the ISM should be favored and hydrocarbon formation kinetically inhibited.
