What is the eneding for the names of all binary comepounds both ionic and molecualer?
No. Not all binary compounds are ionic and not all ionic compounds are binary. An ionic compound is a compound formed by the exchange rather than the sharing of electrons. A binary compound is any compound of exactly 2 elements. Examples: Sodium chloride (NaCl, compound sodium and chlorine) is both binary and ionic. Potassium hydroxide (KOH, compound of potassium, hydrogen, and oxygen) is ionic but not binary. Water (H2O, compound of hydrogen and oxygen) is…
Sodium chloride is an ionic compound ( a compound between a metal and a non-metal) It is also a binary compound as it contains two elements. So it can be described as an ionic compound or more precisely as a binary ionic compound. A binary compound is one that contains exactly two elements. Binary compounds may be ionic or covalent.
Silver nitrate is AgNO3 so it is not a binary compound as it contains three elemnts. The term binary ionic is unusual - chemists normally say a binary compound, binary ionic may be taken to mean just two sorts of ions in which case it would be classified as a binary ionic as ther are two ions Ag+ and NO3-
