Introduction to Chemistry I-Week 3 Notes (September 12, 2016) Chapter 2: Atoms, Molecules, and Ions Key to my notes: all notes that are taken from the lecture will be the first section, notes I take  from the textbook will be the second section, and the vocabulary words from the chapter with  definitions will be the last sections! (: The textbook and vocabulary notes are from the second  half of chapter 2 Lecture Notes  Henry Mosley made the periodic table by mass not number  Now it is in order of atomic number  o When it is lined up like this it shows a pattern of how the elements line up  Elements in the same group have similar chemical properties  There are 8 groups that have the main groups are labeled through 1A­8A o There are 8 groups that are the transition metals that are labeled 1B­8B Group names  o Group IA(1):  alkali metals  +1  o  Group IIA(2):  alkaline earth metals  +2 o  Group VIA(16):  chalcogens (“chalk formers”) o  Group VIIA(17):  halogens (“salt formers”)  ­1 o  Group VIIIA(18):  noble gases (or inert gases or rare gases) o  Group IB(11):  coinage metals Elements want to have the same number of electrons as the Nobel gases Covalent are between NONMETALS  o Share electrons o Carbon is an example Ionic bond between generally formed between METALS and NONMETALS. Oxidation is the loss of electrons Reduction is the gain of electrons Top right of the periodic table has the greatest electronegativity  Rules for oxidation o Oxidation number of elements (in their natural stable state) is always zero. o simple monoatomic ions have an oxidation number equal to its charge o Sum of the oxidation numbers of all atoms in a formula must equal the charge on  the formula. If no charge is shown, it is assumed to be zero. Naming compounds o Ionic compounds   Binary ionic compounds with metals having only ONE common charge.  When the metal component is fixed Page 1 of 5 Introduction to Chemistry I-Week 3 Notes (September 12, 2016) o The name of the cation is the same as the name of the  metal.  o The name of the anion takes the root of the nonmetal name  and adds the suffix “­ide”. o The subscripts in the formula give the combining ratio for  the ions  When the metal component is variable like Iron II or Iron III o Binary ionic compounds with metals, particularly transition metals, having more than one common charge.  Ionic compounds in which one or both the ions are polyatomic. o The polyatomic ion stay together as a charged unit o when two or more of the same polyatomic ion are present  in the formula, the ion appears in parentheses with the  subscript written outside  Families of oxyanions (oxoanines) o When the same element forms ONLY two oxyanions, the  name of the one that contains more oxygen ends in ­ate; the name of the one with less oxygen ends in –ite  Important element names to memorize when naming Element  Formula Name Common Name from Latin Copper  Cu + copper(I) cuprous 2+ Copper  Cu copper(II) cupric Gold  Au + gold(I) aurous Gold Au 3+ gold(III) auric 2+ Iron Fe3+ iron(II) ferrous Iron  Fe iron(III) ferric Mercury  Hg 22+ mercury(I) mercurous Mercury  Hg 2+ mercury(II)          mercuric 2+ Tin Sn tin(II) stannous Tin Sn4+ tin(IV) stannic  Acid naming  Hydrogen in the front   The anion “­ate” suffix becomes an “ic” syffix in the acid.    The anion “­ite” suffix becomes an “ous” suffix in the acid.  Ends with acid  o Covalent Compounds Page 2 of 5 Introduction to Chemistry I-Week 3 Notes (September 12, 2016)  First word is the name of the first element with a Greek suffix of how many  there are unless it is one  Second word is the name of the second element with a Greek suffix of how  many there are and ends in –ide  Common compounds  Element Common Name H 2 Water  NH 3 Ammonia  CH 4 Methane H2O 2 Hydrogen peroxide N H Hydrazine 2 4 PH 3 Phosphine Page 3 of5 Introduction to Chemistry I-Week 3 Notes (September 12, 2016) Textbook Notes  Note: These are notes from the second half of chapter 2 notes  Ionic compounds tend to be neutral unless otherwise stated o The cation charge cancels the anion charge   Organic compounds have hydrogen and carbon atoms   Naming ionic compound o Cations formed from metal atoms have the same name as the metal   If it has different possible charges, use roman numerals  Cations formed from nonmetal atoms have names that end in –ium o The names of monatomic anion are formed by replacing the ending of the name of element with –ide   Polyatomic anions containing oxygen have names ending in either –ate or  –ite  Naming acids  o Acids containing anions whose names end in –ide are named by changing the –ide ending to –ic, adding the prefix hydro­ to this anion, and then following with acid o Acids containing anions whose names end in –ate or –ite are named by changing  –ate to –ic and –ite to –ous and then adding the word acid   Naming binary molecular compound  o Name of the element further to the left in the periodic table is usually written first   If both elements are in the same group then the one closer to the bottom  goes first  o Name of second element given –ide  o Use Greek prefixes to show how many of each element there are   Do not use mono­ if the first element only have one  Things that only have hydrogen and carbon are named differently  o The name ends in –ane and have a prefix  Page 4 of 5 Introduction to Chemistry I-Week 3 Notes (September 12, 2016) Vocabulary Words  Note: These are in order as they showed up in the chapter, not in alphabetical and have to do  with the second half of chapter 2  Ionic Compound: a compound composed of cations and anions   Chemical Nomenclature: the rules used for naming structures  Oxyanion: a polyatomic anion that contains one or more oxygen atoms   Hydrocarbon: compounds composed of only carbon and hydrogen   Alkanes: compounds o carbon and hydrogen containing only carbon­carbon single bonds  Alcohol: an organic compound obtained by substituting a hydroxyl group (­OH) for a  hydrogen on a hydrocarbon  Isomers: compounds whose molecules have the same overall composition but different  structures  Page 5 of5
