List the rules for converting formulas to names, and names to formulas for ionic and molecular compounds.

Naming Ionic and Molecular Compounds Hands-On Labs, Inc. Version 42-0315-00-01

Review the safety materials and wear goggles when working with chemicals. Read the entire exercise before you begin. Take time to organize the materials you will need and set aside a safe work space in which to complete the exercise.

Experiment Summary:

You will apply the rules for naming ionic and molecular compounds to write the names of compounds when given the chemical formula. You will also write the formula for ionic and molecular compounds when given the name.

Learning Objectives Upon completion of this laboratory, you will be able to:

● Describe how the periodic table arranges elements by their chemical properties.

● Discuss the IUPAC naming system.

● Define molecular compound, ionic compound, polyatomic ion, oxidation state, and diatomic element.

● Identify the prefixes and suffixes used to name polyatomic ions and list the name, formula, and charge of common polyatomic ions.

● List the rules for converting formulas to names, and names to formulas for ionic and molecular compounds.

● Explain the difference between binary and oxoacids, and identify the rules for naming each.

● Generate a colored periodic table to distinguish between the groups of elements, and create a list of common polyatomic ions and strong acids to aid in naming chemical compounds.

● Write the names for ionic compounds, molecular compounds, polyatomic ions, and acids by interpreting their formulas.

● Write the chemical formula for ionic compounds, molecular compounds, polyatomic ions, and acids by interpreting their compound names.
