Ch. 15 and 6 Polyatomic Ions
Tightly bound groups of atoms that behave as a unit and carry a charge.
Trick to remember:
The bigger number ate the little number!
A. Contain a polyatomic ion
B. Same rules as for binary ionic compounds.
One addition – Use parenthesis if there is more than one polyatomic ion
