Establish the rules in naming binary ionic compounds and determine the name for Mn2O3
The rules for naming binary ionic compounds are as follows:
1. The metal keeps its name and is named and written first.
– For transition metals, we use Roman numerals to denote its charge.
2. The nonmetal keeps its base name but has its ending changed to –ide.
Give the systematic names for the formulas or the formulas for the names.
a. manganese(II) oxide
b. magnesium trioxide
c. magnesium(II) trioxide
d. manganese(III) oxide
e. dimanganese trioxide
