Each box contains the most typical ions and complex ions for the
given element IUPAC now recommends the numerical classification
system given in the top row; however, some authorities prefer
classification schemes that use A/B subgroup designations.
Group 15 Elements Formula:
NHx
• Nonsystematic or trivial names are used widely (e.g., NH3Æammonia;
PH3Æphosphine) • Corresponding systematic names are nitrogen
trihydride and phosphorus trihydride, respectively
Group 16 & 17 Elements Formula:
HxN
Nomenclature: (hydrogen) (non-metal element stem + -ide)
e.g., H2S Æhydrogen sulfide; HBr Æhydrogen bromide
• Solutions of these compounds in water are binary acids • They are named
by using the prefix hydro-, the stem of the name of the non-metal plus the
ending -ic, followed by the word acid (e.g., H2S(aq) Æhydrosulfuric acid;
HBr(aq) Æhydrobromic acid; HI(aq) Æhydroiodic acid)
Arabic numerals: Used as right subscript to indicate number of individual con -
stituents (e.g., CaCl2) • Used as right superscript to indicate charge number (e.g.,
Cu2+) • Used to indicate composition of addition of non-stoichiometric compounds
(e.g., Na2CO310H2O) • Used to designate mass number and/or atomic
number; mass number is written as left superscript and atomic number as
left subscript (e.g., 18
8O, 3
1H)
Commas: Used to separate locants (e.g., cis-bis(glycinato-N,O)platinum) • Used
in solid state chemistry to separate symbols of atoms substituting each other (e.g.,
(Mo,W)nO3n-1) • Used to separate symbols of labeled atoms in selectively labeled
compounds (e.g., [18O, 32P]H3PO4)
Dots: Used to indicate an unpaired electron in free radicals (e.g., CH3, Br)
Used as center dots in formulas of hydrates, addition compounds, double salts,
and double oxides (e.g., NH3BF3)
Dash: Used to indicate bond in structural formulas (e.g., H2N – BF2) • Used
to separate two components in the name of a molecular addition compound (e.g.,
ammonia – boron trifluoride(1:1)) • Used between italicized atomic symbols to
indicate metal-metal bonds (e.g., bis(pentacarbonylmanganese) (Mn – Mn))
Colon: Used to separate numbers indicating proportions of constituents in
molecular addition compounds (e.g., methanol compound with boron trifluoride
(2:1)) • Used to separate appended locants designating atoms of bridging groups
involved in bonding between polynuclear centers (e.g., bis(µ-nonafluorobutyrato-
O:O')-disilver)
Space rule: Used to separate words in names of compounds made of two or
more distinct words (i.e., names for binary compounds and names which include
functional class; e.g., boron trifluoride, sulfuric acid) • Note: Spaces are retained
when species are named as ligands in coordination compounds (e.g., trans-
bis(dipropyl sulfide)dinitroplatinum)
Enclosing marks: In general, three sets of enclosing marks are used: parentheses
( ), brackets [ ], and braces { } (used for clarity when necessary) • Nesting order:
parentheses within brackets within braces (e.g., P[N(CH3)2]3, Al2(SO4)3)Note:
In formulas of coordination compounds, square brackets are used to enclose a
complex ion or a neutral coordination entity (e.g., [Co{SC(NH2)2}4][NO3]2)
Nomenclature: (prefix + element name) (prefix + element stem + -ide)
• Name of less electronegative atom is written first • Normally, the prefix
mono- is omitted from name of first element • Other prefixes are di-, tri-,
tetra-, penta-, hexa-, hepta-, octa-, nona-, deca-, etc. • Absence of a
prefix implies the number one (1)
Note: The total number of positive charges must equal the total number
of negative charges
e.g., As2S3Ædiarsenic trisulfide; NCl3Ænitrogen trichloride; PCl3Æ
phosphorous trichloride; SO2Æsulfur dioxide; N2O5Ædinitrogen
pentaoxide; CO Æcarbon monoxide (Exception: mono- is required to
distinguish from carbon dioxide, CO2); H2OÆdihydrogen oxide (water); N2O
Ædinitrogen oxide; SiO2Æsilicon dioxide; MnO2Æmanganese dioxide
Formula Name
NH3nitrogen trihydride
H2S hydrogen sulfide
H2O dihydrogen oxide
N4S4* nitrogen sulfide
S2Cl2disulfur dichloride
Cl2O chlorine oxide
OF2oxygen fluoride
Cation Anion Name*

Fe3+ Cliron(III) chloride
Ca2+ O2– calcium oxide
Fe2+ S2– iron(II) sulfide
Cation Anion Name*
Na+Hsodium hydride
Ca2+ Hcalcium hydride
*The preferred IUPAC name is sulfur nitride
*Since the metal is more electropositive,
it is written first
Complex Hydrides
NaBH4Æsodium borohydride;
LiAlH4Ælithium aluminum hydride
Oxoacids are aqueous solutions of compounds containing three different
elements: hydrogen, oxygen, and a non-metal
Formula: H–X–O
Nomenclature: (prefix + stem of polyatomic ion + suffix) (acid )
• Prefix and suffix describe the oxidation
state of the central element • In case of
two possible oxidation states, the suffix
-ic is used for the acid with the greater
number of oxygen atoms, and the suffix
-ous is used for the acid with the smaller
number of oxygen atoms • In case of four
possible oxidation states (all halides), the
suffix -ous is used for two acids with the
fewest oxygen atoms, the suffix -ic is used
for two acids with the greatest number of
oxygen atoms, the prefix hypo- is used for
the acid with the fewest oxygen atoms, and
the prefix per- is used for the acid with the
most oxygen atoms • The prefixes ortho-,
meta-, and para- are used to distinguish
acids with differing water content
Formula Name
H3BO3boric acid
H2CO3carbonic acid
H2CrO4chromic acid
HNO3nitric acid
HNO2nitrous acid
H3PO4phosphoric acid
H3PO3phosphorous acid
H2SO4sulfuric acid
H2SO3sulfurous acid
HClO hypochlorous acid
HClO2chlorous acid
HClO3chloric acid
HClO4perchloric acid
HMnO4permanganic acid
H2MnO4manganic acid
Formula: H–O–O–X
Nomenclature: (peroxo- + acid name)
e.g., HNO4Æ peroxonitric acid (H–O–O–NO2);
H3PO5Æ peroxophosphoric acid; H2SO5Æ peroxosulfuric acid;
H4P2O8Æ peroxodiphosphoric acid; H2S2O8Æ peroxodisulfuric acid
Formula: CHA Nomenclature: (cation) (hydrogen) (anion)
• Salts that contain acidic hydrogen in addition to other cations are acid salts
e.g., NaHCO3Æsodium hydrogen carbonate; NaH2PO4Æsodium
dihydrogen phosphate; Na2HPO3Æsodium hydrogen phosphite
Notes: Non-acidic hydrogen is not explicitly cited but an acidic hydrogen
on the anion is included in the name • According to IUPAC Rules, “Hydrogen
shall be followed without space by the name of the anion (e.g., NaHCO3Æ
sodium hydrogencarbonate)”; however, chemists in North America continue
to include the space
Multiple Cations
Formula: CCA and CCCA Nomenclature: (cation) (cation) (anion)
• A multiple salt is one which has at least two different cations; anions
that have a negative charge of two or more may form multiple salts
• A double salt is one which has two different cations; anions which
have a negative charge of two or more may form double salts
e.g., KMgF3Æpotassium magnesium fluoride;
NaNH4HPO46H2OÆsodium ammonium hydrogen phosphate hexahydrate;
Na(UO2)3[Zn(H2O)6](CH3COO)9Æhexaaquazinc sodium triuranyl(VI) nonaacetate
• Cations are arranged in order of decreasing valence (except hydrogen)
• The cations of each valence group are arranged in order of decreasing
atomic number with the polyatomic ions (e.g., ammonium ion) at the
end of their appropriate group
• The prefix aquo- may be used to name a hydrated cation; number of water
molecules is indicated by a numerical prefix (e.g., tetra-, penta-,hexa-, etc.)
Multiple Anions
Formula: CAA and CAAA Nomenclature: (cation) (anion) (anion)
e.g., Ca5F(PO4)3Æpentacalcium fluoride trisphosphate
• Anions are named in the following group order: (i) H(ii) O2– and HO
(iii) Monoatomic inorganic anions (see Nonmetal-Nonmetal)
(iv) Inorganic polyatomic anions: the group with the smallest number of
atoms is first; if two groups have the same number of atoms, then the
group with central atom having the lowest atomic number is listed first
(e.g., CO3
2– is listed before CrO4
2– and CrO4
2– is listed before SO4
2–)
(v) Anions of organic acids are listed in alphabetical order
• The number of anions is not always listed if the valences of the cations
are known or cited • When naming complex salts, separate the salt into two
parts (cation and anion) • Separate the components of the cation and anion
into groups, name each group, and list them in their proper order
Note: Anions with a valence of –2 may form double salts
Formula: COA or C(OH)A Nomenclature: (cation) (oxide or hydroxide) (anion)
e.g., Mg(OH)Cl Æmagnesium hydroxide chloride;
ZrOCl28H2OÆzirconium oxide dichloride octahydrate
• Basic salts are alternatively named as hydroxy or oxy salts
• Multiple oxides and hydroxides are named using the additional prefixes
di-, tri-, tetra-, penta-, etc. (e.g., LiAl(OH)42MnO2Ælithium aluminum
dimanganese(IV) tetraoxide tetrahydroxide)
THIO ACIDS
Formula: H–S–X
Nomenclature: (thio- + acid name)
e.g., H2S2O3Æ thiosulfuric acid; H3PO2S2Æ dithiophos phoric acid;
H2CS3Æ trithiocarbonic acid; H3AsS3Æ trithioarsenic acid
Thio acids are derived from oxo acids by replacement of oxygen by sulfur
When more than one oxygen atom is replaced by sulfur, the number of sulfur
atoms is indicated by a prefix (e.g., dithiophosphoric acid) • The prefixes
seleno- and telluro- can be used in a similar manner
Note: Replacement of oxygen by groups other than peroxo and sulfur
are named as: H[PF6] Æhydrogen hexafluorophosphate; H[AuCl4] Æ
hydrogen tetrachloroaurate; H2[PtCl4] Ædihydrogen tetrachloro platinate;
H4[Fe(CN)6] Ætetrahydrogen hexacyanoferrate; H[B(C6H5)4] Æhydrogen
tetraphenylborate • Water solutions of these hydrogen compounds are
acids; to name these compounds, change suffix -ate to -ic acid and
-ite to -ous acid
Binary Compounds
BINARY COMPOUNDS (CONTAINING TWO ELEMENTS)
Inorganic Acids
BINARY ACIDS
Formula: H–X, where Xis an anion from Group 16 or 17 or a poly atomic anion
Nomenclature: (hydro- + stem of non-metal element + -ic) (acid )
Binary acids are aqueous solutions of certain compounds of hydrogen and a
non-metal atom (e.g., F, Cl, Br, I, S) • When gaseous hydrogen chloride (HCl) is
dissolved in water, it reacts completely to give hydronium ions (H3O+) and chloride
ions (Cl) (e.g., HCl(aq) Æhydrochloric acid)Note: NH3in water is not an acid
