Naming Ionic Compounds Presentation created by Ms. Saleh
This presentation will be presented as part of the class lecture. Pay close attention to the order of ions in writing ionic compounds (cations/postitive before anions/negative). Also, pay close attention to how to write formulas depending on which group the element/ion is from (elements that can form multiple ions must include the charge in Roman Numerals after the name of the ion). With this information, you should be able to determine formulas when given names as well as determine names when given formulas. Try naming the compounds provided in the examples before viewing their answers on the slides.

Naming Ionic Compounds
This website presents you with general and more specific rules that you will need to know when it comes to nomenclature. Pay close attention to when to use Roman Numerals and when to change the name of the element/ion (Cupric, Cuprous, etc.). With this information, you should be able to determine formulas when given names as well as determine names when given formulas. Try naming the compounds provided in the examples on the page as well as those included at the bottom.

Naming & Formulas for Ionic Compounds
This website presents you with general and more specific rules that you will need to know when it comes to nomenclature and writing formulas. Pay close attention to how to determine and write charges for the ions and then apply them in writing the formula (crossing the charges between ions). Based on this, you should also be able to “undo” formulas to determine charges on ions that may have multiple charges. With this information, you should be able to determine formulas when given names as well as determine names when given formulas. Try naming the compounds and writing the formulas provided in the examples on the page as well as those included at the bottom.

Based on this, you should also be able to “undo” formulas to determine charges on ions that may have multiple charges. With this information, you should be able to determine formulas when given names as well as determine names when given formulas. Make sure you check out the cations & anions names/formulas links to understand what charge is designated to each ion.
