  • Because it should be Sodium Chloride (I)
  • Because sodium's O.N is always +1. Roman numerals are only used for variable oxidation state elements
  • Because the compound is so well known it becomes redundant
  • Because Chlorine is always -1, therefore sodium must be in a 1:1 ration hence NaCl
