Transition Metal in naming

Postby Diego Gonzalez 3F » Sun Dec 02, 2018 10:26 pm

Is there any particular why the transition metal always go last in the order when naming a compound?

I think that’s just how it is because it makes turning the compound into a single, long word easier that way than having the metal name come first.

The transition metal does not have a suffix so it should go later the name. I hope that helps.
