Naming An Ionic Compound

When you name an Ionic compound the metal always goes first and the nonmetal. If the metal is a transition metal and is not Ag, Zn, and Al you add roman numerals to tell the charge. Then you would put an -ide at the end of the nonmetal if the nonmetals is part of the main group. An example would be lithium and sulfur. You would first name the metal which is Lithium then you write the name of the nonmetal and add -ide because it is part of the main group. The end result is Lithium, Sulfide.
