General Rules for Naming Compounds Cations Metallic cations use their given atomic name. Polyatomic, non-metal cations given ium ending NH 4 + ammonium ion H 3 O + hydronium ion If the cation has multiple oxidation states you must indicate the charge using (roman numerals). Examples: CuCl Copper(I)Chloride CuCl 2 Copper(II)Chloride Anions Most anions named by replacing ending with ide . Oxyanions names depend on the number of oxygens in the molecule. per____ate _______ate _______ite hypo___ite Oxyanions containing H + atom are named with hydrogen prefix. HSO 4 - hydrogen sulfate H 2 PO 4 - dihydrogen phosphate •Determine if compound is ionic or molecular Ionic typically metal + non-metal examples: Na 2 SO 4 , MgCl 2 , FeI 3 •Name cation first followed by anion Molecular typically non-metals examples: H 2 SO 4 , HCl, CO 2 , NH 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
