How are chemical symbols written in the Latin alphabet?

Chemical element symbols are typically composed of one or two letters from the Latin alphabet, with the first letter capitalized. Many functional groups, for example, have their own chemical symbol, such as "OH" for alcohol or "CN" for amide.

In addition to these standard elements, a few other atoms are also shown with a single letter: oxygen has the symbol O while nitrogen has the symbol N. Fluorine, bromine, iodine and astatine have the same symbol as their respective elements.

The first letter of the chemical symbol for an element is capitalized only when that element is named after someone or something. Otherwise, it is lowercase.

For example, carbon is the only element in the universe whose atomic number exceeds that of iron, which has 26 protons. Thus, all forms of carbon are called "carbonaceous materials". Other elements are simply called by their numbers-atomic number-without any mention of a name.

It should be noted that not all chemists agree on whether or not element symbols should be considered names. Some prefer to think of them as numbers while others see them as labels that help identify compounds containing that element.
