A naming Covalent Compounds Worksheet is a draft or guideline for the naming of compounds that are based on the aforementioned step. The formulation of a worksheet or guideline does not involve the person doing the actual naming of the compound. The name and naming of the compound are then finalized at a later time by another person.
The paper used for these guides is of a very small format. This gives the person using the sheet or template more room to write about the features of the compound. The cell width is around three to four lines. The lines are separated by commas, which will allow the use of modifiers within the cell to be effective.
The first step in the naming of Covalent Compounds Worksheets is to determine the most important feature of the compound. This feature may be very simple or it may be complex. There is a need to research the features of the compounds to be named. Doing this step before naming a compound allows for a specific structure to be established.
Next, the feature must be determined to be: a) an oxygen acceptor, b) an electron donor, c) a carbonyl donor, d) a hydrogen donor, e) carbon acceptor, f) a nitric oxide donor, g) a proton donor, h) a carbonyl donor, I) a Nitrosyl donor, j) a metal donor, k) a metal donor, l) a triosecondoxyl donor, m) a triosecondoxyl donor, n) a triosecondoxyl donor, o) a fluorination donor, p) a fluorination donor, q) a third donation, r) a thiol donor, s) a thiol donor, or t) a sulphur-binding feature. Once the specific feature has been determined, all the other cells must then be listed on the sheet. Cell number, cell type, and cell properties (such as chemical formula) must be listed. Cell number is important because it will help identify the name of the compound.
Cell type is the cell type, and cell properties should be listed as part of the cell numbering. Cell type is as follows: b) stereocenters, c) carboxylic acids, d) thiols, e) unsaturated fatty acids, f) saturated fatty acids, g) sulphur-containing fatty acids, h) unsaturated carboxylic acids, I) polysaccharides, j) sulfated carboxylic acids, and k) phosphates. The list can be added to the worksheet using preprinted cells. Adding new cells is simple enough with the use of a few preprinted cells.
Cell properties, which include cell size, surface area, crystal structure, etc., must also be listed. Cell size can be listed using square cells, or using diamond or octagon cells. The square cells will allow for two to three times more space for writing detailed information.
Cell structure is one of the most important features of the molecule, and if the molecule is a stereoisomer or functional group. Both of these features must be listed before the name of the compound is decided. Cell structure can be listed in two ways, through a) the use of radicals, or b) the use of symbols that represent the stereoisomers.
The Naming Covalent Compounds Worksheet is designed to help those looking to name compounds for the first time. It is very easy to use and very efficient when working with small molecule names.
