3.06 - Acid Base Nomenclature - 14:48

KEY CONCEPTS: When naming Binary Acids, start by identifying the hydrogen atom as "hydro" and name the non-metal using the "ic" ending and add the word acid.

Rules for Oxy-Acids:

They are derivatives of polyatomic ions and polyatomic variations. Follow the following 4 rules:

i.) ____ate ions become _______ic acid
ii.) per____ate ions become per_____ic acids
iii.) ____ite ions become _____ous acids
iv.) hypo____ite ions become hypo_____ous acids

Bases contain hydroxide ion (OH)-1

**NOTE: NO "hydro" for oxy-acids
