Work Step by Step

For ionic compounds, the name of the compound is the name of the cation, and then the anion ending with the suffix '-ide'. For covalent compounds, the name of the compound is the name of each element with its corresponding greek prefix, and the last element with both its greek prefix and the suffix '-ide'. For more details and information on what compounds are ionic vs. covalent, refer to section 2.7 on Chemical Nomenclature, starting on page 56.
