Metals

Postby Nathan Rothschild_2D » Sat Dec 07, 2019 12:41 pm

I know we need to know the Latin name for metals when naming coordination compounds, but which metals do we have to know the Latin names for?

I'd know the common ones for the anion coordination compound naming:

iron (ferrate)
copper (cuprate)
chromium (chromate)
silver(argenate)
gold (aurate)

I think the only ones we need to know are iron and copper. In anionic complexes, they become ferrate and cuprate, respectively. You can easily remember this by looking at their atomic symbols: Fe (iron) and Cu (copper).

so does this mean that when you are naming metals, you just add -ate to the end? when is it -ite or -ide?

Read page 723 it'll explain when you use these names. You don't have to use them always, in fact you shouldn't. It explains it well.(it's basically when the complex has a negative charge you use the Latin name with a suffix depending on the metal's charge)

Correction sorry, only some metals come from latin, so only the ones that do can be changed to their latin meaning when the complex has an overall negative charge.

You only use the Latin name + ate when the overall charge of the compound is negative.
