1 - Carbo, carbonis is rightly used for both the element and charcoal, since charcoal is basically pure carbon. No point in making up new words when a perfectly good one is staring us in the face.
2 - For gaseous I would use vaporeus or spiritosus, definitely not "gaseo-us." That would definitely produce some strange inflections.
3 - In addition, the trend in chemical nomenclature is to use -ium primarily to denote metals. The one notable exception, helium, was a mistake since we inferred its existence through spectroscopy of the Sun. Instead of "hydrogenium" I'd use hydrogen, hydrogenis (-ginis?) or go further back to the Greek "maker of water" -- aquifex, aquificis?
: 1 - Hey, I only corrected the link from (Dioxidum carbonii) to (Dioxidum carbonis). I am not making up new words in this case.
: 2 - I dont remember to have written gaseous anywhere...but my memory is kinda weak. Feel free to use vaporeus instead! But I really dont know why you are writing this to me :-)
:3 - I just used the convention following this web page [http://www.hieronymus.us/Latinum/Elementa.htm Elementa].
