Latin names

Postby Anya Holbrook 1E » Sat Dec 12, 2020 7:20 pm

When naming coordination compounds, do we only use the latin name of elements if the element is the anion of the molecule? Or do we just always use the latin names no matter what?

In lecture Lavelle said to use Latin names only if it has negative charge (is an anion).

Like Astha said, we only use the Latin names with anions. Good luck on the final!

You would only use the Latin name when the atom is negatively charged / is an anion.

If you don't know the Latin name, I think something like ironate is acceptable.

Like many others and Professor Lavelle said, the Latin names of metals should only be used to refer to those that are a part of an anionic coordination compound. However, do not forget that this is in addition to attaching the suffix -ate to the end of the metal's Latin name. For example, cuprate or ferrate. Just for future reference, if it is a cation, the metal within the coordination compound should be referred to simply by using its typical English name, such as copper and iron.
