1. NOTE: All numbers in the compounds are subscripts.
Binary compounds simply consist of two elements, in the simplest case each with only one common oxidation number. Name the binary compound Na2S.
2. Some metals have multiple oxidation numbers. For example, determine the formula of Ferrous chloride or Iron (II) chloride.
3. When naming covalent compounds, the prefix system is used. CCl4 is a covalent compound, so how is it named using the prefix system?
4. Not just revolutionaries, in chemistry radicals are fragmentary covalent compounds with one or more unpaired electrons. Name the "revolutionary" ClO3.
5. The oxyacid HNO3 is formed when H+ ions are added to a radical. (NO3). Name the acid.
6. Many metals bond with radicals like they do with non-metals, using similar nomenclature. Name Al2(SO4)3.
7. Binary acids are composed of hydrogen, and a non-metal, and dissolved in water. Name the binary acid HBr(aq).
8. Peroxides are normal binary compounds, where oxygen is the non-metal, with one extra oxygen. Which of these is an example of a peroxide?
9. Acid salts are formed when metals react with oxyacids. Unlike other forms of nomenclature, they can be named two ways. The compound NaHCO3 is both sodium bicarbonate, and sodium hydrogen carbonate.
10. Hydrates are ionic compounds with water attached. Name the compound LiBr > 3 H2O.
