Naming compounds

Postby Or Fisher 1I » Thu May 17, 2018 3:30 pm

Do we need to know how to name compounds and understand the structure of compounds based on their names for test 3 for drawing Lewis structures? Thanks.

Unless the molecule is a common molecule like water, molecular formulas will be given in addition to the name of the molecule.

A couple TA's have suggested memorizing common polyatomic ions, not for the test/exams but just for the future! They are really helpful with naming!

There is a fundamentals section breaking down chemical prefixes and suffixes that help break down and determine the meaning of chemical compound names.
