Give formulas for the following complex ions.

a. tetrachloroferrate(III) ion

b. pentaammineaquaruthenium(III) ion

c. tetracarbonyldihydroxochromium(III) ion

d. amminetrichloroplatinate(II) ion

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The formulas of the given complex ions are to be stated.

Concept introduction: In the formula of coordination ion:

  • Greek prefix is used to express the number of ligands.
  • Roman numeral is used to denote the oxidation state of metal ion.
  • In case of more than one type of ligand present in a ion, they are written alphabetically.
  • The suffix ‘-ate’ is added to metal ion if complex ion contains negative charge. Latin names are also used to identify the name of metals.
Explanation

Explanation

(a)

To determine: The formula of the complex ion tetrachloroferrate(III) ion.

In the given ion, metal ion Iron (Fe3+) is attached to four Chloride (Cl) ligands.  The name of ion ends with ‘–ate’. It means that complex ion is an anion.

Hence, the formula of tetrachloroferrate(III) ion is [FeCl4] .

(b)

To determine: The formula of the complex ion pentaammineaquaruthenium(III) ion.

In the given ion, metal ion Ruthenium (Ru3+) contains five Ammonia (NH3) and one Water (aqua) ligand. The Roman numeral III indicates the oxidation state of Ruthenium.

Hence, the formula of pentaammineaquaruthenium(III) ion is [Ru(NH3)5H2O]3+ .

(c)

To determine: The formula of the complex ion tetracarbonyldihydroxochromium(III) ion
