Cu1+ + O2- ---> Cu2O, this compound must be named Cu(II) Oxide because Cu (elemental symbol for Copper) has multiple oxidation numbers we must specify which compound has been formed by a Roman numeral for the cation. Due to the limitations of this editor I am not able to place a triangle above the arrow to indicate the application of heat to form this compound.
