Compound Names Chemistry Quiz

By January 27, 2014

Follow me on:

Do you know how to name chemical compounds? Did you learn the difference between the meanings of the -ous and -ic endings, like ferrous and ferric? The simplified nomenclature is iron (II) and iron (III). To name compounds, you also need to keep straight the difference between -ate, -ide, and -ite, plus you need to be able to identify the charge on the cation. Here's a quiz, so you can review compound naming and test yourself.
