What exactly does carbon remove?

I admit, I like a little carbon in my tank. I am wondering does anyone know if it mainly only removes organics or will it also remove trace minerals and fertilizers like Flourish? I am hoping no for the latter two but don't know the answer.

"one pound of carbon has a surface area of approximately 125 acres" HOLY GOLDFISH!

Looks like it has a harder time with minerals which is what I wanted to see. Think I will bookmark the article.
