The evolution of gas and dust content of the interstellar medium (ISM) is studied                                                                                    The standard three phase ISM model of McKee & Ostriker (1977) is considered,
by modelling of chemical evolution of the Galaxy. We consider injection of carbon,                                                                                                                         6                                  4
