Roads that are also compounds
« on: November 24, 2014, 06:28:56 AM »

NH3 (ammonia) almost works. The only reason why it doesn't is because Route 3 in New Hampshire is US 3, not NH 3.

NH4 exists as a route, but it is a positively charged ion (ammonium), not a full compound.

Are there any that are both routes and compounds?

If H20 denotes two molecules of hydrogen and one of oxygen, then I suppose H-201, when pronounced the way most people pronounce it, could be considered a more specific way of naming water even if using the "1" is not conventional chemical notation. (Seriously, I've never met anyone who pronounces road numbers as "two-zero-one," it's always "two-oh-one.")

That would exclude all Arkansas highways since Ar is an element.

There is also CO-2 and you should roll down your windows for plenty of air when driving CO-1...

I'm thinking that all those subdivision streets like Springdale, Parkview, Southbrook, and Stonehedge would work. After all, they are compound words.  :)

I-2.  Also (I-)H2.
I-H1 actually, since Hydrogen Iodide.
US2 is apparently a thing. There are two of those.


EDIT: NB-1. Was trying to get something like "NH-1B" but it's ruined by the H. NH-1C would work, but it doesn't exist.
EDIT2: ON-Mb 1 would also work, but Ontario just refuses to cooperate and renumber 17. ON-2 certainly works.

CO3 and CO5 work too. As would CO4 and CO6 if they were still highways.

I'm sure there are plenty of dairy farms along CA 20. :)

Argon is a noble gas and doesn't form compounds. :)

(At least not in nature, after reading up on it.)

I believe SC 203 has not yet been mentioned.  Also: http://www.webelements.com/compounds/
