Brackets are used when writing the formula for the coordination sphere, which includes the metal atom and the ligands attached to it.

Whatever is inside the brackets is directly bound to the transition metal and is in the coordination sphere. Hope this helps!

Anything that is outside the brackets is not bound to the central metal atom or ion.

If anything is outside the brackets it is not a part of the coordinate sphere (such as a hydrate of complex salt)

brackets are the symbol for the coordination sphere that has all the compound that are coordinating inside the sphere.

If there is a cation in front of the brackets does that affect the nomenclature of the compound, if so how?

It means that everything inside the bracket is a part of the coordination compound.

What the brackets signify when they are around the compound is a coordination compound.
