Naming binary compounds

Use prefixes then name element

Don’t use mono-for first element

Change ending of 2nd element to –ide

H2O dihydrogen monoxide

NH3 nitrogen trihydride

N2H4 dinitrogen tetrahydride

C5H10 pentacarbon decahydride

1 = mono

2 = di

3 = tri

4 = tetra

5 = penta

6 = hexa

7 = hepta

8 = octa

9 = nona

10 = deca

Naming Binary Covalent Compounds VI


Naming binary acids h element

Naming Binary Acids(H Element)

  • To name hydrogen use hydro-

  • Use the root word of the element and change ending to –ic acid

    HS hydrosulfuric acid

    HBr hydrobromic acid

    HCl hydrochloric acid

    HI hydroiodic acid


Naming ternary acids h element element

Naming Ternary Acids(H Element Element)

  • Don’t use hydro

  • Use anion name and acid

  • If anion ends in –ate change it to –ic acid

  • If anion ends in –ite change it to –ous acid

    HClO3(ClO3 = chlorate)chloric acid

    HClO2(ClO2 = chlorite)chlorous acid
