Non-Binary nomenclature

question

Sodium nitrate
answer

NaNO3
question

Zinc II sulfite
answer

ZnSO3
question

Al2SO3

answer

Aluminum sulfite
question

Sodium chlorate
answer

NaClO3
question

PbCr2O7
answer

Lead II dichromate

 

In this example, lead has an unusual valence of II instead of the expected valence of IV.  Therefore, you must indicate the change with a roman numeral in the name…

answer

NaHCO3
question

Nickel II cyannide
answer

Ni(CN)2 

 

don’t forget the ( ) around the ;CN;

question

CuCO3

answer

Copper II carbonate

(must have a roman numeral in the name)

question

CrPO4
answer

Chromium III phosphate

;

(must have a roman numeral in the name)

question

Ag2CO3

answer

Silver carbonate;

or;

Silver I carbonate

;

(The valence of Silver is always I so you don’t need a roman numeral in the name this time…)

question

CaCO3

answer

answer

Copper II hydroxide
question

BaSO4

answer

Barium sulfate
question

HgI
answer

Mercury I iodide

(you need a roman numeral in the name here)

question

Chromium III bisulfate
answer

Cr(HSO4)3
question

Ammonium acetate
answer

NH4C2H3O2
question

Nickel II cyanide
answer

Ni(CN)2

(don’t forget the paranthesis in this formula!!!)

question

CoSO4

answer

Cobalt II sulfate

(you need a roman numeral in the name here)

question

Na2SO3

answer

Sodium sulfite
question

Calcium oxalate
answer

CaC2O4
question

Cadmium II nitrate
answer

Cd(NO3)2
question

Ammonium perchlorate
answer

NH4ClO4
question

Aluminum dichromate
answer

Al2(Cr2O7)3
question

NiCrO4

answer

Nickel II chromate

(you need a roman numeral in the name here)

question

Calcium hydroxide
answer

Ca(OH)2

don’t forget the ( ) around the OH

question

Potassium carbonate
answer

K2CO3
question

HgHCO3

answer

Mercury I bicarbonate

or

Mercury I hydrogen carbonate

 

(the valence of Mercury is I in this example)

question

MnSO4
answer

Manganese II sulfate

question

Nickel III hydroxide
answer

Ni(OH)3

 

remember you need () around the hydroxide!!!

question

Carbon disulfide  (a binary compound)
answer

CS2
question

NiNO3

answer

Nickel I nitrate

question

NH4Cl
answer

ammonium chloride

question

Ammonium sulfate
answer

(NH4)2SO4
question

Calcium phosphate

answer

Ca3(PO4)2
question

KMnO4

answer

Potassium permanganate

question

Sodium bicarbonate  (baking soda)

answer

NaHCO3
question

Magnesium sulfate  (epsom salts)

answer

MgSO4
question

MnSO4
answer

answer

Nickel III borate
question

Aluminum chlorate
answer

Al(ClO3)3
question

HgS2O3

answer

Mercury II thiosulfate

 

Must have the roman numeral in the name since Mercury is a transition element of multi valence.
