Naming Simple Molecular and Ionic Compounds (page and table numbers refer to Brown, LeMay, and Bursten, 10 th edition) Compound ionic molecular (metal and nonmetal) (nonmetal and nonmetal) main group metal (A columns) transition metal (B columns) carbon and hydrogen other nonmetals 1) elemental cations - name of element organic chemistry 1) most metallic - named as cation 2) elemental anions - subtract last syllable 2) most nonmetallic - named as anion or two from name of element then add ide 3) # of each type of atom indicated by prefix table 2.6, p.66 cation charge = column #, anion charge = column # - 8 examples: NaCl examples: SO 2 CaI 2 SO 3 calcium fluoride N 2 O 4 aluminum oxide 1) elemental cations - name of element plus charge on metal in roman numerals and parentheses (because transition metals can have more than one charge, (a few main group metals also do this)
