Naming Coordination Compounds

Postby Sana_Mian_3G » Fri Dec 07, 2018 10:47 am

How do we find the charge of the transition metal? Is there a way to memorize it?

The best way to memorize them is to just do practice problems and you will start getting used to eat transition metal.

In regards to naming coordination compounds and the charges of metals in the brackets, the charge of metal ion + charge of negative and neutral ligands = total charge of the compound. Also, don't forget to take into account any atoms with charges on the outside of the brackets when considering overall charge.

You add up the charges of all the ligands and the ions outside of the brackets. for example, if that number adds up to 2- and the charge of the total molecule is 0, then the charge of the metal is 2+.
