Homework Statement


It's been a minute since I've used this stuff.
Name the Ionic Compound

Ca(MnO4)2
Ba(HCO3)2
UO3
NaH2PO4

Homework Equations


In my book it says you name the cation first then add an Ide to the root.
In UO3 this seems to work as its Uranium Oxide.
But for the others im not sure. When i look it up online it doesnt have the ide in the root.[/B]


The Attempt at a Solution


Calcium permanganide
Barium hydrogen carbonide
Uranium Oxide
Sodium dihydrogen phosphide

Manganide? Carbonide? Phosphide? If you have a doubt make a search on the name you thought off and see if it corresponds to the given compound.

Hydride, carbide, sulfide, oxide, chloride etc. are reserved for compounds made of two elements only.
