The name and formula of the acid of the given oxoanion has to be given. Concept Introduction: Oxoanions are formed when hydrogen is removed from the oxoacids. The acid from which the anion is derived can be named using simple information. If the anion has suffix as “-ate”, then the corresponding acid has to have “-ic” as suffix. If the anion has suffix as “-ite”, then the corresponding acid has to have “-ous” as suffix.
