Naming Ionic Compounds Chemical Nomenclature  is the systematic naming of chemical compounds. Here  we examine just a few rules for chemical substances that can be named relatively  easily. 1. Name the cation (the more electropositive one) first and the anion (the more  electronegative one) second. 2. Monoatomic cations take their name from the element name. 3. Monoatomic anions take their names from the first part of the element name and  then add  "-ide" Cation Name H + Hydrogen Na + Sodium Al 3+ Aluminum Anion Name H - Hydride Cl - Chloride O 2- Oxide 4. What are the names for NaCl, MgO, and HBr? 5. NaCl = sodium chloride 6. MgO = magnesium oxide 7. HBr = hydrogen bromide 8. 9. When elements form more than one type of ionic compound Roman numerals are  used to indicate the charge on the cation.

    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.
