Correct naming conventions

When do you add the suffix -ate to the metal name in a coordination compound?

You add the suffix -ate to the metal name in a coordination compound when the net coordination compound has a net negative charge.

You would use the suffix ate if the complex has an overall negative charge. The suffix is added to the end of the metal.

Also, the -ate is added to the stem of the metal's name. For example, iron would be named ferrate.
