Practice Problem

FOr [Fe(NCS)(OH2)5]2+ how do you name iron at the end? I know you use ferrate for a negatively charged complex, but what do you use when it is positively charged?

I think we will just always use ferrate when naming a coordination compound

According to the textbook (Toolbox 9C.1),if it's not a negatively charged complex, you use iron instead of ferrate (ex. [FCl(OH2)5]+ is a pentaaquachlorido(II) ion
