Due to the special electronic configuration, small atomic size, light mass, and flexible bonding features, carbon exhibits many different structural configurations with very different physical and chemical properties. Here we focus our discussion on three recent forms of carbon, namely, metallic carbon, magnetic carbon, and all-pentagon-based carbon. The metallic carbon can be used for metallic interconnects in future electronic circuits, nano devices and microprocessors while the magnetic carbon can have applications in spintronics. All-pentagon-based carbon nano-structure, penta-graphene, not only expands the family of carbon materials with a number of new features, but also provides the materials basis for the 2D packing of pentagons pursued by mathematicians for almost a century.
