My confusion is I know that if it is negative the change the ending of something to -ate? My question is what is that something? Is it the transition metal that becomes -ate or a ligand? Also what are we looking at that is negative?
If the complex has an overall negative charge, an anionic complex, the suffix -ate is added to the stem of the metal's name. Additionally, if the symbol of the metal originates from a Latin name,then the Latin stem is used.
