CHAPTER 6: COMPOUNDS Two or more elements combined chemically in a fixed ratio IONIC COMPOUNDS: MAKE IONS OF ATOMS AND USE ELECTROSTATIC ATTRACTION v Positive ions: usually occur within all metals (solids) in the periodic table. Ø Metals are able to remove an electron from there outmost shells (valence electrons) Ø Ø ION SIZE DECREASES ACROSS THE TABLE, THEREFORE POSTIVIE ION SIZES ARE SMALLER THAN ATOMS v Negative ions: non-metals Ø Non Metals gain electrons, making the ion negative Ø Ø Repulsion is greater than attraction, so NEGATIVE IONS GET BIGGER (size wise) ACROSS THE TABLE. NEGATIVE IONS > ATOM (size wise) v Naming ionic compounds Ø Na+ = sodium Al 3+ = Aluminum Ø BUT à O 2- = oxide F- = fluoride Ø v Formulas: Ø v Qualities of ionic compounds: Ø Very high melting points Ø Crystalline 3d structures Ø Strong electrostatic attraction Ø Mostly solids @ room temperature v Some positive ions have variable charges : Ø Group 4A: Sn 2+, Sn 4+ ; Pb 2+, Pb 4+ Ø Group 5A: Bi 3+, Bi 5+ v v 2 v POLYATOMIC IONS: YOU MUST MEMORIZE THESE!!! Ø COVALENT COMPOUNDS (AKA MOLECULES) v Made by electron sharing between atoms (“bonding inside”) Ø v 3 Prefixes: mono, di, tri, tetra, etc.. Ø NUCLEAR ENERGY GENERATION v Nuclear fission: breaking the nucleus Ø v Nuclear fusion: combining nucleus (HIGHLY EXPENSIVE AND EXTENSIVE) Ø 4
