We're being asked to determine the types of compounds that use prefixes in their names.
Let's recall the rules for naming ionic and covalent bonds:
• positively charged ion + negatively charged ion
▪ metal(or polyatomic ion) + nonmetal(or polyatomic ion)
Rules for naming 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.
According to the IUPAC nomenclature system, the types of compounds that use prefixes in their names are _______.
A) ionic compounds
B) ionic compounds involving transition metals
C) polyatomic ions
D) covalent compounds made up of two nonmetals
E) compounds that contain polyatomic ions
