Uranium Carbide Chemical Formula

Uranium carbide is represented using the formula UC2. It is a good heat resistant ceramic material. It is mainly used as a nuclear fuel either on its own or with a combination of plutonium carbide for nuclear reactors. Powdered UC ignited spontaneously in air. It was also used in late designs of nuclear thermal rockets. Its cas register number is 12070-09-6.
