1 Section 7.1 Chemical names and formulas Honors ChemistrySection 7.1Chemical names and formulas
2 Significance of a Chemical Formula A chemical formula indicates the relative number of atoms of each kind in a chemical compound.For a molecular compound, the chemical formula reveals the number of atoms of each element contained in a single molecule of the compound.example: octane — C8H18The subscript after the C indicates that there are 8 carbon atoms in the molecule.The subscript after the H indicates that there are 18 hydrogen atoms in the molecule.
3 Significance of a Chemical Formula The chemical formula for an ionic compound represents one formula unit—the simplest ratio of the compound’s positive ions (cations) and its negative ions (anions).example: aluminum sulfate — Al2(SO4)3Parentheses surround the polyatomic ion to identify it as a unit. The subscript 3 refers to the unit.Note also that there is no subscript for sulfur: when there is no subscript next to an atom, the subscript is understood to be 1.
5 Monatomic IonsMany main-group elements can lose or gain electrons to form ions.Ions formed form a single atom are known as monatomic ions.example: To gain a noble-gas electron configuration, nitrogen gains three electrons to form N3– ions.Some main-group elements tend to form covalent bonds instead of forming ions.examples: carbon and silicon
6 Monatomic Ions Naming Monatomic Ions Monatomic cations are identified simply by the element’s name.examples:K+ is called the potassium cationMg2+ is called the magnesium cationFor monatomic anions, the ending of the element’s name is dropped, and the ending -ide is added to the root name.F– is called the fluoride anionN3– is called the nitride anion
11 Naming Binary Compounds Binary Compounds contain only 2 elements.Binary Compounds ALWAYS end in –ideExceptionsCompounds with hydroxide - OH-Compounds with cyanide – CN-Compounds with peroxide – O22-
12 Binary Ionic Compounds In a binary ionic compound, the total numbers of positive charges and negative charges must be equal.The formula for a binary ionic compound can be written given the identities of the compound’s ions.example: magnesium bromideIons combined: Mg2+, Br–, Br–Chemical formula: MgBr2
13 Binary Ionic Compounds A general rule to use when determining the formula for a binary ionic compound is “crossing over” to balance charges between ions.example: aluminum oxide1) Write the symbols for the ions.Al3+ O2–Cross over the charges by using the absolute value of each ion’s charge as the subscript for the other ion.
14 Always Check Your CHARGES!!! Ionic CompoundsAlways CheckYour CHARGES!!!
15 Practice Write formulas for the following: Magnesium and Iodine Potassium and sulfurAluminum and chlorineZinc and bromineCesium and sulfurStrontium and oxygenCalcium and Nitrogen
17 PracticeName the following:BaF2CaOAgFCdOK3NNaIAlBr3
18 Naming Ionic Compounds The Stock System of NomenclatureSome elements such as iron, form two or more cations with different charges.To distinguish the ions formed by such elements, scientists use the Stock system of nomenclature.The system uses a Roman numeral to indicate an ion’s charge.examples: Fe2+ iron(II)Fe3+ iron(III)
20 Naming Compounds using the Classical System Ion with the higher charge uses –ic suffix.Ion with the lower charge uses the –ous suffix.Examples:CuCl2 – cupric chlorideCuCl – cuprous chlorideSnO2 – stannic oxideSnO – stannous oxide
21 Practice Write the formula and name for the following: Cu+, O2- Fe3+, S2-Cu2+, Cl-Sn2+, Cl-Hg2+, O2-Sn4+, S2-V2+, F-V3+, Br-
22 Polyatomic IonsMany common polyatomic ions are oxyanions—polyatomic ions that contain oxygen.Some elements can combine with oxygen to form more than one type of oxyanion but always with the same charge.example: nitrogen can form:The name of the ion with the greater number of oxygen atoms ends in -ate. The name of the ion with the smaller number of oxygen atoms ends in -ite.
23 Polyatomic IonsSome elements can form more than two types of oxyanions.example: chlorine can form:In this case, an anion that has one fewer oxygen atom than the -ite anion has is given the prefix hypo-.An anion that has one more oxygen atom than the -ate anion has is given the prefix per-.
25 Naming Ternary Compounds (with Polyatomic Ions) Name the cationName the anionThe name of the polyatomic remains unchangedName the saltExample - K2CO3Example - NH4OH

29 Practice Write formulas for the following: Copper (II) nitrate Potassium iodideSodium hydroxideAmmonium acetateCalcium carbonatePotassium permanganateSodium sulfateIron (III) nitrate
30 Naming Binary Molecular Compounds Unlike ionic compounds, molecular compounds are composed of individual covalently bonded units, or molecules.As with ionic compounds, there is also a Stock system for naming molecular compounds.The old system of naming molecular compounds is based on the use of prefixes.examples: CCl4 — carbon tetrachloride (tetra- = 4) CO — carbon monoxide (mon- = 1) CO2 — carbon dioxide (di- = 2)
32 Naming Binary Molecular Compounds Put the less electronegative element first. This element only has a prefix if there is more than one of the element.Name the second element – prefix/root/ideDrop o or a at the end of the prefix if the element begins with a vowel.Example – monoxideExample – VO5 – vanadium pentoxide
33 Naming Compounds Using Numerical Prefixes Video
34 Naming Molecular Compounds Using the Stock System Write the names of the elements.After the first element add the apparent charge in parentheses written as a Roman Numeral.Example:CO – carbon monoxide or carbon (II) oxideCO2 – carbon dioxide or carbon (IV) oxideP2O3 – diphosphorous trioxide or phosphorous (III) oxide
35 Practice Name the following with prefixes and using the Stock System: PF5XeF4CCl4
36 Practice Write the formulas for the following: Carbon dioxide Dinitrogen pentoxideSulfur hexafluoride
37 Covalent-Network Compounds Some covalent compounds do not consist of individual molecules.Instead, each atom is joined to all its neighbors in a covalently bonded, three-dimensional network.Subscripts in a formula for covalent-network compound indicate smallest whole-number ratios of the atoms in the compound.examples: SiC, silicon carbide SiO2, silicon dioxide Si3N4, trisilicon tetranitride.
38 Acids and SaltsAn acid is a certain type of molecular compound. Generally we refer to solutions with available hydrogen ions (H+) as acids.Most acids used in the laboratory are either binary acids or oxyacids.Binary acids are acids that consist of two elements, usually hydrogen and a halogen.Oxyacids are acids that contain hydrogen, oxygen, and a third element (usually a nonmetal).
40 Acids and Salts sulfuric acid H2SO4 sulfate nitric acid HNO3 nitrate In the laboratory, the term acid usually refers to a solution in water of an acid compound rather than the acid itself.example: hydrochloric acid refers to a water solution of the molecular compound hydrogen chloride, HClMany polyatomic ions are produced by the loss of hydrogen ions from oxyacids.examples:sulfuric acid H2SO4 sulfatenitric acid HNO3 nitratephosphoric acid H3PO4 phosphate
41 Acids and SaltsAn ionic compound composed of a cation and the anion from an acid is often referred to as a salt.examples:Table salt, NaCl, contains the anion from hydrochloric acid, HCl.Calcium sulfate, CaSO4, is a salt containing the anion from sulfuric acid, H2SO4.The bicarbonate ion, , comes from carbonic acid, H2CO3.
42 Naming Acids Binary acids are named as follows: Use prefix hydro-End name in –icExample – HCl – hydrochloric acidHBr – hydrobromic acidOxyacids are named as follows:Name of polyatomic-ic suffix if more oxygens (-ate ending)- ous suffix if less oxygens (-ite ending)Example – H2SO4 (from sulfate) – sulfuric acidExample – H2SO3 (from sulfite) – sulfurous acid
