Naming coordination compounds

Postby Michelle Shin 4B » Sun Dec 01, 2019 6:08 pm

How do you determine the roman numerals when naming a coordination compound, and how do you know you need to include them in the name?

The roman numeral corresponds with the positive charge, or oxidation state, of the metal in a coordination compound. They should always be included in the name right after the metal.

The roman numeral corresponds with the oxidation state I believe.

The charge of the metal ion is determined by counting up the charge of the other elements and then making the charge of the metal ion so that together it's equal to the total charge of the compound.

The oxidation state of the metal is the roman numeral.

The roman numeral is the indication of the transition metals oxidation state.
