03 – Chemical Nomenclature The world of chemistry is fraught with the need to  contrive names for compounds that are  DISTINCT. You'll find the need for a system of nomenclature  throughout organic chemistry, inorganic  chemistry, acid chemistry, and elsewhere.

03 – Chemical Nomenclature We shall begin with naming binary salts. ..which is  pretty easy. The procedure for naming: [name of cation] +  [name of anion] = [name of binary salt] E.g. NaCl: the name of the cation is “Sodium”, the  name of the anion is “Chloride” (not “chlorine”!). NaNO 3 : anion's name is “Nitrate”. A full list of cation and anion names will be  provided. Let me know if you need any more. ..
