Han Solo frozen in carbonite

"Oh, they've encased him in carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is."
―C-3PO[src]

Carbonite was a liquid substance that was made from carbon gas and could change into a solid through rapid freezing. Goods could be encased in carbonite for preservation, through a process known as carbon-freezing.[1] Carbonite blocks could also be used to place people in hibernation.[2] Before the invention of the hyperdrive, some early spacers would use carbonite to endure long voyages. That technique, however, had brutal side effects, collectively referred to as hibernation sickness.[3] Droids such as the DLC-13 mining droid could be made out of heat-resistant carbonite.[4]

During the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and the clone troopers under their command froze themselves in carbonite to smuggle themselves into the Citadel on Lola Sayu.[5]

During the Galactic Civil War, Skywalker, now Darth Vader, intended to trap his son Luke in carbonite. Having blackmailed Lando Calrissian into letting him use the carbon-freezing facility on Bespin, he tested the device out on Han Solo. Boba Fett transported the carbonite block to Jabba's Palace, where Jabba displayed it as a trophy.[6]
