Metal Prefixes

Postby Manya Kidambi 3I » Sun Dec 02, 2018 6:36 pm

In example 17.29, Iron becomes ferro-. Do we need to know the names of metals used in coordination compounds? (such as argentate for silver, stannate for tin, etc.)

I feel like that would revolve around memorization, and usually Lavelle stresses the idea of understanding the concepts as opposed to memorization so I doubt it. But hey, you never know. I may be wrong.

I think we're supposed to know the compounds in the table that Lavelle posted on the course website
