Solution: Give the systematic name for this coordination compound. [Cr(H 2O]5Cl](ClO3)2 

Problem

Give the systematic name for this coordination compound. [Cr(H 2O]5Cl](ClO3)2 

Solution

The formula of the coordination compound to be named is the following:

[Cr(H2O)5Cl](ClO3)2

First, remember the rules for naming coordination compounds:

Name cations before anions. C+ A-

    a) Use roman numerals to describe the positive charge in transition metals. M3+ à M(III)

    b) The only space between the names should appear between the cation and anion. C_A
