Adding o to end of anion name

Postby Grace Lee 3G » Tue Nov 28, 2017 10:47 pm

I know ide changes to ido, ate changes to ato, and ite changes to ito. But how can I tell if an anion originally ends in ide, ate, or ite?

I think you just have to memorize polyatomic ions and know how their nomenclature works/changes. I'm not sure if there's an easier way to tell, sorry!
