Hi, I am a sophomore currently taking a chemistry class and I have a question.
How does Nomenclature work for chemistry? :?: :?:
My chemistry teacher glossed over this subject and did not go into detail.
Therefore, I am falling behind in class because I don't know how naming chemicals and chemical formulas work.
I am failing tests because of this.
Can someone please help me?
Thanks

This is a bit tricky to explain in forum posts and it is best to illustrate with worked examples. If you post some of the structures you have to name I'll work through them for you to show you how the rules are applied. For what it's worth the rules are here:

Organic compounds: http://www.adichemistry.com/organic/bas ... ature.html
This is a simplified version if the full rules are a bit hard to follow: http://www.chem.ucalgary.ca/courses/351 ... index.html
(it also has some practice questions)

For inorganic compounds this is a decent summary of the rules: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IUPAC_nom ... _chemistry
