Unit #6 NAMING COMPOUNDS

6.1 - Binary Compounds

6.1.2 - Binary compounds containing metals with fixed ionic charges

Before we proceed, you need to be able to identify which metals have fixed ionic charges. Click on the elements to the right to locate the metals with fixed ionic charges on the periodic table.

Some metals have fixed charges. Click to make sure you know which ones they are. There are thirteen of them to learn.

 

Here are some examples of binary compounds containing metals with fixed ionic charges:



Rules for naming binary compounds containing metals with fixed ionic charges:

  1. Name the metal first followed by the nonmetal with the ending -ide.
  2. No Greek prefixes necessary here because the metal has a fixed charge and, therefore, in forming a compound, there is only one possible combination with the nonmetal.

Let's apply the above rules and name the above examples. Click on each formula to check the name of each compound.
