An allotrope is a particular form of an element distinguished by the physical arrangement of that element's atoms, when multiple are possible. For example, red phosphorous and white phosphorous are two allotropes of phosphorous. Likewise, graphite and diamond are two allotropes of carbon. Allotropes often have differing chemical properties such as stability, density, hardness, and reactivity.
