transition metal suffix

Postby Kavee Dodampahala 4E » Sat Dec 07, 2019 4:05 pm

Can someone explain how to name the transition metal when the complex is positive, negative, and neutral overall?

When the complex is negative, you would name the metal with the ending -ate. If it is positive or neutral, the metal name will remain unchanged.

Only if the complex is negatively will the metal end with -ate. Furthermore some metals have special names. For iron for example, you would say ferrate instead of ironate.
