					    Nomenclature of Molecular compounds
Name the least electronegative nonmetal first using the prefix
denoting how many are in the formula then prefix + root of the most
electronegative nonmetal + ide ending:
    SO3 Sulfur trioxide         IF5    Iodine pentafluoride
   CO Carbon monoxide N2Br4 Dinitrogen tetrabromide
 Notice that the formula is written as least electronegative to most electronegative.
 Notice that the number of elements in the compound is mentioned in the name.
 Notice that the first nonmetal does not use a prefix if there is only one.
  Prefixes:
                                          There are also molecular
  1 – mono          6 – hexa              compounds that only use their
  2 – di            7 - hepta             common name. For example:
  3 – tri           8 – octa              H2O is water
  4 – tetra         9 - nona
                                          NH3 is ammonia
  5 – penta         10 - deca
                                          H2O2 is hydrogen peroxide
