Transition Metal Oxidation Numbers When Naming Complexes

Postby Kevin Chang 2I » Thu Jul 21, 2016 9:51 pm

What is the exact process in determining the oxidation number/state for a transition metal when naming a coordination compound or complex?

look at the total charge of the complex, subtract the charge of each ligand and you will end up with the oxidation state of the transition metal.
