A quick google search of your ingredient and systematic name should show you. Pick a name on the list that you are able to recognize pieces of and explain what it means using the nomenclature rules we have learned.

TOPIC: nomenclature–how we name chemical compounds. Find an item in your home with an ingredient list. For example, a food item, hair care products, cleaning products, etc. Make sure the name on the list is the IUPAC systematic name. A quick google search of your ingredient and systematic name should show you. Pick a name on the list that you are able to recognize pieces of and explain what it means using the nomenclature rules we have learned. Give the chemical formula of your ingredient. Then, do some research and explain what the ingredient does in the product (if you can find that information). Make sure to connect the name of your ingredient to what we have learned for naming, if you cannot explain some piece, it would be better to pick a different ingredient. For example, potassium chloride can be found in shampoo. It is an ionic compound consisting of potassium ions and chloride ions. The chemical formula is KCl. This ingredient is often used to increase viscosity of a product. (You would need to expand more on this to meet guidelines) Please cite any sources you use.
