Monatomic Ions

Non-Metals-One charge only, ions receive the suffix “-ide”

Group Charge Examples

14 4- C4-, Si4-
15 3- N3-, P3-
16 2- O2-, S2-
17 - F-, Cl-
18 no charge, do not form ions He, Ne

Representative Metals-Most have one charge only, no suffix change

Group Charge Examples

1 + Na+, K+
2 2+ Mg2+, Ca2+
13 3+, but some have second charge Al3+, Ga3+

Transition Metals-Most have multiple charges, roman numerals are used to represent charge, no suffix change
