  • Binary Acid – Hydrogen and a non-metal.
  • Oxyacid – Oxygen, hydrogen and at least one other element.

Binary Acids

Common example: hydrochloric acid.

hydro + [anion root name] + ic acid

Oxyacids

Common example: sulfuric acid

[oxyanion root] + [acid suffix]

  1. hypo- … -ite –> hypo- … -ous
  2. -ite –> -ous
  3. -ate –> – ic
  4. per- … -ate –> per- … -ic
