9C.1 - Ate ending

Postby Alex Tchekanov Dis 2k » Sun Nov 24, 2019 2:44 pm

For part a and c the metal atom is changed to end in "ate" , but in part b and d, it is not. Can someone please explain why this is?

If the complex has a negative charge, then -ate is added to the end of the metal name. Since parts a and c have a negative charge, -ate is added. Parts b and d do not have a negative charge.
