Transcripts - Naming chemical compounds

  • 1. • a lot of chemicals have common names as well as the proper IUPAC name • common name = “nickname” • proper name = systematic name developed by methods of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry”
  • 2. • Though chemicals have both a common and proper name, some chemicals are called exclusively by their common name • H2O – water not dihydrogen monoxide • NH3 – ammonia not hydrogen trihidride
  • 3. • Write the name of the metal (cation) • write the name of the nonmetal with the ending changed to –ide (anion) • examples ??
  • 4. 1. BeF 2. Li2O 3. B2O3 4. Mg3N2
  • 5. • Transition metals - Have multiple ion charges - A roman numeral indicates the charge of ion - Examples : Fe, Cu - Nonmetals do not have multiple charges so no roman numerals
  • 6. 1. CuCl 2. Mn2S3 3. SnO2 4. Cu3N2 5. Fe2S3 6. KCN 7. NH4Cl
  • 7. • Ions containing oxygen always end in “-ate” or “-ite” • Greek prefixes are used to show the number of atoms of each element in a compound. - mono, di, tri
