Ferrate and Cuprate?

When do I use the terms ferrate and cuprate instead of just iron and copper??

You use ferrate and cuprate when naming a coordination compound.

If the complex is negative you have to add -ate to the end of the metal. The only exception is iron and copper, which change to ferrate and cuprate.

ferrate and cuprate are used when the coordination complex is negative overall. all of the metals can have -ate added to the end of their names, but iron and copper need to be in their latin terms (an easy way to remember is that iron = Fe & copper = Cu. FErrate and CUprate).

they are used when iron and copper occur as the anion in the coordination compound

The the coordination complex has an overall negative charge, you would use ferrate instead of iron and cuprate instead of copper.
