Chemical Nomenclature Practice
Use these sites to help you practice your naming/writing skills. A note of fair warning...some examples from these sites may use ions that we have not specifically discussed (for instance, phosphite or hydrogen sulfate). Don't fear that which you have not explicitly studied...use what you KNOW about the PATTERNS we've discussed in naming and try them (you may just impress yourself!)
- http://www.kentschools.net/ccarman/cp-chemistry/compound-naming/ - This exercise allows you to choose the number of practice questions for either ionic or molecular compounds (or both) starting with either the formula or name (or both). (Note: Use "hydrogen carbonate" for HCO3- instead of "bicarbonate".) When typing in formulas, don't worry about getting your numbers subscripted...just type them in normally...for instance, water's formula would be entered H2O.
- http://www.fernbank.edu/Chemistry/nomen.html - A simple HTML-based review of nomenclature. The material provided in yellow covers the same formula types we discussed in class (ionic, molecular & acids)
- http://www.sciencegeek.net/Chemistry/taters/Unit4BinaryNomenclature.htm - Practice with molecular compounds
- http://www.sciencegeek.net/Chemistry/Review/BinaryCovalent/ - Another practice with molecular compounds
- http://www.sciencegeek.net/Chemistry/Review/BinaryIonic/ - Practice with binary ionic compounds
- http://www.sciencegeek.net/Chemistry/Review/Polyatomics/ - Practice with ionic compounds containing polyatomic ions
- Polyatomic Ions Concentration Game - Use this to practice some common polyatomic ions. The review works great on phones in landscape mode.
- Mahjong Chem - From the "Game" dropdown list you can choose Polyatomic Ions. There's a wide variety of topics you can practice with this site; feel free to explore!
