Binary acids contain hydrogen and just one other nonmetal element. With binary acids the anion will be an atomic ion . Name binary acids like this: Hydro anion root ic acid Here are some examples: atomic anion binary acid formula name (root highlighted) formula name (anion root highlighted) fluor ide hydro fluor ic acid chlor ide hydro chlor ic acid sulf ide hydro sulfur ic acid * * Notice that the root for sulfur ( ) is sulf- for ordinary anions but sulfur- for acids. This is just a historical accident. Oxyacids contain hydrogen, oxygen, and one other element, usually a nonmetal. With oxyacids the anion will be an oxoanion .

If the name of the anion ends in -ate , name the acid the way you name oxyacids. anion acid formula name (root highlighted) formula name (anion root highlighted) cyan ide hydro cyan ic acid thiocyan ate thiocyan ic acid acet ate acet ic acid oxal ate oxal ic acid...
