Naming coordination cmpd

Postby Hyein Cha 2I » Fri Nov 24, 2017 2:40 pm

As seen in the picture, it says that if the complex has ocerall negative charge, the suffix -ate is added to the stem of the metal’s name. Also, if symbol of metal has latin origins, then the latin stem is used. How can we know if an element has latin roots or not? Must we memorize all latin root elements??

In discussion, my TA stated that for the purposes of the test, two of the more important Latin root elements to remember are Copper and Iron. In a coordination compound with a negative charge, Copper is written as Cuprate and Iron is written as Ferrate.
