Synonyms for oxidane or Related words with oxidane
Examples of "oxidane"
Alternatively, it may refer to a mononuclear hydride of an element. For instance, methane for CH4 and
BH (borane), CH (methane; not carbane!), SiH (silane), NH (azane), PH (phosphane), HS (sulfane) and HO (
The accepted IUPAC name of water is "
" or simply "water", or its equivalent in different languages, although there are other systematic names which can be used to describe the molecule.
is only intended to be used as the name of the mononuclear parent hydride used for naming derivatives of water by substituent nomenclature. These derivatives commonly have other recommended names. For example, the name hydroxyl is recommended over "oxidanyl" for the –OH group. The name oxane is explicitly mentioned by the IUPAC as being unsuitable for this purpose, since it is already the name of a cyclic ether also known as tetrahydropyran.
Water has several systematic names, including "
" (the IUPAC name), "hydrogen oxide", and "dihydrogen monoxide" (DHMO). The latter was the basis of the dihydrogen monoxide hoax, a document that was circulated warning readers of the dangers of the chemical (for example, it is fatal if inhaled).
This naming method generally follows established IUPAC organic nomenclature. Hydrides of the main group elements (groups 13–17) are given "-ane" base names, e.g. borane, BH. Acceptable alternative names for some of the parent hydrides are water rather than
and ammonia rather than azane. In these cases the base name is intended to be used for substituted derivatives.This section of the recommendations covers the naming of compounds containing rings and chains.
This naming method generally follows established IUPAC organic nomenclature. Hydrides of the main group elements (groups 13–17) are given -ane base name, e.g. borane (BH),
(HO), phosphane (PH) (Although the name "phosphine" is also in common use, it is not recommended by IUPAC). The compound PCl would thus be named substitutively as trichlorophosphane (with chlorine "substituting"). However, not all such names (or stems) are derived from the element name. For example, NH is called "azane".
Under the 2005 revisions of IUPAC nomenclature of inorganic chemistry, there is no single correct name for every compound. The primary function of chemical nomenclature is to ensure that each name refers, unambiguously, to a single substance. It is considered less important to ensure that each substance should have a single unambiguous name, although the number of acceptable names is limited. "Water" is one acceptable name for this compound, even though it is neither a systematic nor an international name and is specific to just one phase of the compound. The other IUPAC recommendation is "
