    Okay. Some birds have a different name when they are in a group. Thank you for the answer.

    I made up those definitions myself.

    Oxalate ions are C2O4[-2]. No idea what C2O2 is.

    while it is covalent, it is also organic... so some rules change...

    It's organic compound naming... I am not taking organic chem though lol

    No bashing going on guvnah. I was just alluding to the fact that it's a lot more important to me to know how compounds act than how they look or what they're called, and that, whether it had been real or not, I knew nothing about any C2O2 molecule.

    Rules don't so much change as switch between different sets. There were like four names listed, and they were all right, just different.

    There's no "organic naming" scheme, though, and talking about names is, again, totally missing my point.

    It... has carbon? That's the only iron-clad rule I can think of, but obviously that's not fully accurate. I think it's just sort of arbitrary where they go, "Well, this contains carbon, but no, it's not organic." CO2 is one prominent example, and I'd bet that C2O2 would also be inorganic. It's a little easier to figure out than that sounds, though.

    I thought it was organic if it contains both carbon and hydrogen simultaneously.

    But that was my freshman year, so don't hold me to that.

    It doesn't have to contain hydrogen to be an organic compound. As long as it contains a significant amount of carbon, it's classified as organic.

    Edit: I will point out, though, that it depends where your get your definition as there currently is no "official" definition for what constitutes "organic" in chemistry, although what I posted above is typically accepted.

    See now, you've put me in a pickle because pretty much every organic compound will have hydrogen. The only ones that I can think of that won't are ones that have halides (which can almost always be easily substituted with hydrogen), like CCl4 or CFCs. But I guess there are enough so that it isn't the rule.

    This is also extremely relevant. Still, when in doubt, ignore the other nonsense and listen to IUPAC.

    this. at least you can talk to your european cousin or canadian cousin without mixing up compounds
