(9/23/16) ● The symbol for a cation is written by adding the positive charge as a  superscript to the symbol for the element. ○ The sodium cation would be written as Na+ ● The symbol for an anion is written by adding the negative charge as a  superscripts ○ The chlorine anion would be written as Cl­ ● If the charge is greater than 1, the number used, as in Ca 2+ and N3­ 3.2 Ions & the Octet Rule ● Octet rule: Main group elements tend to undergo reactions that leave  them with 8 valence electrons. ● When sodium or any other alkali metal reacts with chlorine or any other  halogen, the metal transfers an electron from its valence shell to the valence  shell of the halogen. ● Main group   metals  lose electrons to form cations and attain an electron  configuration like that of the noble gas just before them in the periodic table. ● Main group   nonmetals   gain electrons to form anions and an electron  configuration like that of the noble gas just after them in the periodic table. Worked Examples 3.3 Ions of Some Common Elements ● Group 1A: ● Group 2A: ● Group 3A: ● Group 4A, 5A: ● Group 6A: ● Group 7A: ● Transition metals form cations, but they can lose one or more “d” electrons in addition to losing valence “s” electrons. The Octet Rule is not followed. Worked Example 3.4 Periodic Properties & Ion Formation ● INSERT SLIDE ● Ionization energy is the energy required to remove one electron from a  single atom in the gaseous state. ○ Small values indicate ease of losing electrons to form  cations. ● Electron affinity is the energy released on adding an electron to a single  atom in the gaseous state. ○ Halogens have the largest values and gain electrons most  easily. ● See page 79’s chart ● Halogens gain electrons most easily. ● Alkali metals lose electrons most easily. ● Noble gases neither lose nor gain electrons. ● Elements near the middle of the periodic table do not form ions easily. Worked Example 3.4 + 3.5 ­ It is easier for Mg to lose 2 e­ than for S to gain 2 e­ 3.5 Naming Monoatomic Ions ● Main group metal cations are names by identifying the metal, followed by  the word ion. ● K+ is potassium ion, Mg2+ magnesium ion, Al3+ aluminum ion ● Anions are named by replacing the ending of the element with ­ide,  followed by the word ion. ● Bromine, Br­, bromide ion ● Oxygen, O2­, Oxide ion ● Transition metals can form more than one type of cation. Two naming  systems are used. ○ Old: the ion with the smaller charge is given the ­ous ending, the ion with the larger charge is given the ­ic ending. ○ New: The charge on the ion is given as a roman numeral in  parentheses right after the metal name. ○ Cr2+ is old: Chromous ion, is new: Chromium (II) ion ○ Cr3+ is old: Chromic ion, is new: Chromium (III) ion ● See table 3.1 in your textbook 3.6 Polyatomic Ions ● Polyatomic ions: an ion that is composed of more than one atom ● The atoms in a polyatomic ion are held together by covalent bonds. ● A polyatomic ion is charged because it contains a total number of  electrons that is different from the total number of protons in the combined  atoms. ● These ions are encountered so frequently that it is essential to memorize  their names and formulas. ● See Table 3.3 in textbook
