Naming Compounds - Part 1 - YouTube.
As with ionic compounds, the system for naming covalent compounds enables chemists to write the molecular formula from the name and vice versa. This and the following section describe the rules for naming simple covalent compounds, beginning with inorganic compounds and then turning to simple organic compounds that contain only carbon and hydrogen.
Rules for naming compounds. First of all, decide if the compound is ionic, covalent-molecular or an acid. Each of these three has its own rules that cannot be mixed and matched. Naming ionic compounds: Name the cation then the anion. Examples: NaNO3 sodium nitrate Na2SO4 sodium sulfate CaCl2 calcium chloride K3PO4 potassium phosphate.
Worksheet 5.1 Writing and Naming Ionic Compounds with Polyatomic Ions and Transition Metals Section A Write the name of the ionic compounds containing polyatomic ions (BE CAREFUL TRANSITION METALS MAY HAVE ROMAN NUMERALS and NICKNAMES) 1. Pb3(PO4)2 lead(II) phosphate 2. Cu2CO3 copper (I) carbonate 3. Fe(C2H3O2)2 iron (II) acetate 4. CaSO4.
Rules for naming Type II binary compounds. 1. The cation is always named first and the anion second. 2. A simple cation (obtained from a single atom) takes its name from the name of the element. Include a Roman numeral to indicate the oxidation number (charge) on the metal cation. 3. A simple anion.
