Cation Naming

Postby Abby De La Merced 3F » Sat Dec 08, 2018 12:17 pm

Just to clarify, you add -ate onto the end of a transition metal when the anion is the complex ion and not the cation?

Yup! An anionic complex with an overall negative charge.

If it's a coordination compound that overall is neutral, but the complex is negative you still add ate to the end
