In the Maze of Chemical Nomenclature--How Students Name Oxo Salts.
Schmidt, Hans-Jurgen
International Journal of Science Education, v22 n3 p253-64 Mar 2000
Discusses students' (n=10,058) problems with naming oxo salts following a given formula. Many students incorrectly named oxo salts as oxides, and the students' own names for the compounds were more helpful to find the correct formula than the common names. Concludes that high school students are more interested in intellectually challenging lessons than is often supposed. (Author/WRM)
