Naming Chemical Compounds

Postby Josh Clark 1J » Fri Sep 30, 2016 9:54 am

I haven't taken chemistry since sophomore year of high school and I'm a little rusty naming chemical compounds. Does anyone have a knowledgable source where I can brush up on this topic?

See the useful summary at the beginning of the course reader.

We will do examples in class as part of Chapters 3, 4, 11, 12, 17.

I am also very rusty on naming compounds/I never completely understood the different rules for naming. I read the rules in the course reader, but I am still confused. Does anyone know of any helpful videos to watch or is there any one that feels like they have a good understanding of how to name compounds and could help me out?

I find the Crash Course Chemistry to be very helpful when it comes to brushing up on old Chem topics! This one on nomenclature helped me with naming: https://www.khanacademy.org/partner-con ... menclature

Does anyone know if there is a good, comprehensive list of the all the polyatomics we should know?
