How long can someone be kept in and successfully unfrozen from carbonite - most likely physical/mental effects?
 
Does species matter regarding this?

Plot.

That is the answer to your questions :) it's whatever you need for your plot to move forward. Need to bring someone in to the Rebellion Era from the Sith Wars? Carbonite to the rescue! Side effects may be temporary or permanent, and may include blindness, nausea, muscular spasms, amnesia, loss of taste...really anything you need.

Canonically, and in Legends, they could spend centuries, even millennia in Carbonite hybernation. Carbon Freezing was used to place colonists in hybernation during the the early years of galactic exploration before the advent of hyperdrive technology.

In The Clone Wars, Anakin and some Clone Troopers were frozen in carbonite to infiltrate a Seperatist base, then had no ill effects immediatly after thawing.

That would suggest (Canonically anyway), that the longer you are in, the greater the effects you suffer. (Han was in for much longer, and lost his sight for a good time as a result).

Now, that might be down to the process used, as Han was frozen in a makeshift method, but otherwise, you would be looking at Legends for any more details.

In This system the rule of cool is king, baby!

'Do what would work best on the big screen' is my motto whenever I have a what if....? moment.

You forgot “...sexual side effects in men women. Talk to your GM if you’re pregnant or think you may become pregnant before being frozen in carbonate. People frozen in carbonate should not use MAO inhibitors. If you’re wondering if frozen carbonate is right for you, talk to your GM today.”

Don’t forget that carbonite is a known to the state of California to be a carcinogen!

Also, you can’t have just Carbonate.

Carbonate is an ion with -2 charge, so if you ever somehow compiled pure Carbonate ions, they would instantly repel each other before something oxidizes them.

It's true.  I just finished reading up on it on Wookiepedia.

*Wookieepedia. Also, there’s no Wookieepedia page for Carbonate. Do you mean Wikipedia?

Thank autocorrect for that. I didn’t even notice it changed the word!
