Naming inorganic compounds l.jpg

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Positive ions (cations)

Cations formed from metal atoms have the same name as the metal.

Na+ sodium ionZn2+ zinc ion

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Positive ions (cations)

If the metal can form ions with more than one charge, the charge is in ( ).

Co+ cobalt()Co2+ cobalt()

metal names

Lower charge gets the ous Higher charge gets the ic

Fe2+ = Fe(II) = FerrousFeCl2=ferrous chloride

Fe3+ = Fe(III) = FerricFeCl3=ferric chloride

Cu+ = Cu(I) = cuprousCuBr=cuprous bromide

Cu2+ = Cu(II) = cupricCuBr2=cupric bromide

Hg+ = Hg(I) = MercurousHgI= mercurous iodide

Hg2+ = Hg(II) = MercuricHgI2=mercuric iodide

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Positive ions (cations)

Follow the poly atomic ion list for others

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Negative ions (anions)

Monotomic anions – drop the ending of the name and add –ide.

H- hydrideO2- oxideBr- bromide

Follow the polyatomic ion list for others.

Ionic compounds

Name the cation followed by the anion

CaCl2 calcium chloride

Al2O3 aluminum oxide

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Binary molecular compounds

(covalent compounds)

  • The name of the element farthest to the left in the table is written first.

  • If in the same group, the lower one is named first

  • The second element is given the ide ending

  • Greek prefixes are used to indicate the number of each atom.

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Naming Acids

If the acid has no oxygen then simply add hydro as prefix and ic acid as suffix

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Naming Acids

If the acid contains oxygen

use ic acid if the anion ends in ate

and

use ous acid if the anion ends in ite.

Naming Inorganic Compounds

Naming Acids

If the acid contains oxygen

If the acid has one less O than the ite ion then uses hypo….ousacid

If it has one more O than the ate ion then use per….ic acid.
