Naming Chemical Compounds

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
If you want to talk about, say, German literature, you're probably going to need to know a good deal about the German language. In much the same way, if you want to talk about Chemistry, you're going to need to learn something about chemical language, or nomenclature, and the systems and rules used to form the names of chemical compounds.

There are definite trends in how chemical compounds are named. For example, did you know that most molecular compounds use Greek prefixes?

Watch and listen as Professor Dean Harman discusses some of the most common names of ions, molecules, and acids and identifies the trends used when naming these compounds in Thinkwell's "Naming Chemical Compounds."
