SiCl$_{4}$ - Silicon Tetrachloride

#### Work Step by Step

1. First, begin by writing the name of the first element. Si -Silicon. 2. Since, SiCl$_{4}$ is a molecular compound (two non-metals joined together), we have to use the appropriate prefix for the second element. 3. Note that the second element, chlorine, has four atoms. This means we have to use the prefix "tetra" and change chlorine's ending to chloride. 4. Combine the two names to get $$Silicon Tetrachloride.$$
