Learn More About This Simulation

Inorganic nomenclature is one of the key foundations required for many chemical careers, such as in analytical chemistry, cosmetics, and hygiene. In this simulation, you will apply the periodic table to accurately name monoatomic anions, cations, and binary compounds. Then, you will apply the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) rules for oxyanion naming to accumulate a catalog of oxyanion/acid structures. 

Naming monoatomic ions

Familiarise yourself with the terminology: monoatomic, anion, cation, ionic, covalent, and binary compounds. Utilize the periodic table to begin constructing a recipe on how to name monoatomic anions and cations. Practice breaking up IUPAC names into their root and suffix.

Naming binary compounds

Build on the monoatomic ion naming recipe to name ionic, covalent, and binary acid compounds, accurately. Practice applying this recipe to name common inorganic compounds found at the beach!

Construct jigsaw models of oxyanions/acids

Construct oxyanions and oxyacids to visually learn the difference between the various IUPAC rules. Learn the basics of lewis structures and how VSEPR theory alters the geometry of oxyanions and their oxyacids. 

Build a structure bank of oxyanions/acids

At the end, challenge your oxyanion knowledge by unlocking all 16 oxyanion and oxyacid structures in our ‘free play mode’. Transmute your completed models into their everyday applications!

“They did the simulation at home, then completed the in-person lab within 30 minutes, no questions asked, and passed the quiz with flying colors.”

"I saw some of the students who clearly didn’t necessarily like sitting there reading a book discover they could turn on Labster and keep up with the rest of the class because it spoke to them.

Melody McGill
Curriculum Coordinator
Modesto City Schools

"Having something that's engaging for the students gives teachers that opportunity to breathe and get excited again. Because they're seeing the kids light up, they're seeing the kids engage with content."

"The question always is, ‘Can we demonstrate that the students are meeting course outcomes?’ Check! We can do that.”

Dr. Melody Esfandiari
Chemistry Lecturer
San José State University

"We surveyed over 400 students. More than 90% thought Labster was easy to navigate, and that it was fun, but more importantly, most of them felt confident that they could execute the labs in person. And that confidence is a big deal."

“The Labster simulations get students to do things, and they're not just sitting there consuming a webinar where their mind can drift. They become an active participant in that learning experience.”

How do students access Labster?

Labster is hosted online, which means that students only have to login from their internet browsers once an account is created.

How is Labster purchased?

Labster is only available for purchase by faculty and administration at academic institutions. To procure Labster, simply reach out to us on our website. Schedule a demo, book a meeting to discuss pricing, start a free trial, or simply fill out our contact form.

How is Labster different from other learning solutions?

Labster simulations are created by real scientists and designed with unparalleled interactivity. Unlike point and click competitors, Labster simulations immerse students and encourage mastery through active learning.

What types of courses does Labster support?

Labster supports a wide range of courses at the high school and university level across fields in biology, chemistry and physics. Some simulations mimic lab procedures with high fidelity to train foundational skills, while others are meant to bring theory to life through interactive scenarios.
