a) Not 100% sure but would likely be copper (I) chloride just to be specific.
e) ammonium hypochlorite
i) stannane
 
  • #6
a) can also be called cuprous chloride
 
  • #7
e)NH4ClO....yes it can also be ammonium perchlorate

Thanks I get it now. One other question:

Whats the formula for stannic bromide? Is stannic a element?
 
  • #9
Sn 4+ tin(IV) or stannic

Therefore it would be SnBr4

Nope.Tetrahydride of Tin/Stanium.

I thought it was

CLO4 Perchlorate
CLO3 Chlorate
CLO2 Chlorite
CLO Hypochlorite

I haven't taken gen chem in a while, but I thought that per meant "hyper" which indicated an extra oxygen. (-ite indicates one less, and hypo--ite indicates 2 less than orig).

Isn't the compound
[tex] SnH_{4} [/tex]

If so,then it is TETRA (apud 4 atoms) HIDRIDE (it is a metalic hydride) of TIN/STANIUM.

That's not correct.The anionic radical [itex] ClO^{-} [/itex] is called HYPOCHLORIDE...

Actually, hypochlorite.

Roxy, I suggest you forget about everything in this thread until you read this : http://www.cofc.edu/~deavorj/101/nomenclature.html [Broken]

Note that sometimes the cation is refered to by the latinized name indicating element and oxidation state. The common latin names for elements are found here http://www.syvum.com/cgi/online/serve.cgi/squizzes/chem/periodic1b.html

These names are used usually if an element exhibits multiple oxidation states. In such cases, the suffix -ous indicates the lower oxidation state and -ic refers to the higher one.

So, iron (II) is ferrous and iron (III) is ferric.
