1 Naming Binary Molecular Compounds

2 Binary Molecular Compounds Compounds between two nonmetals Compounds between two nonmetals First element in the formula is named first. First element in the formula is named first. Keeps its element name Keeps its element name Gets a prefix if there is a subscript on it Gets a prefix if there is a subscript on it Second element is named second Second element is named second Use the root of the element name plus the -ide suffix Use the root of the element name plus the -ide suffix Always use a prefix on the second element Always use a prefix on the second element

3 List of Prefixes 1 = mon(o) 1 = mon(o) 2 = di 2 = di 3 = tri 3 = tri 4 = tetra 4 = tetra 5 = penta 5 = penta 6 = hexa 6 = hexa 7 = hepta 7 = hepta 8 = octa 8 = octa 9 = nona 9 = nona 10 = deka 10 = deka

4 Naming Binary Compounds P2O5 =P2O5 =P2O5 =P2O5 = CO 2 = CO = N 2 O = diphosphorus pentoxide carbon dioxide carbon monoxide dinitrogen monoxide
