Learning Plan

  1. Watch the video on naming ionic compounds with transition metals.

  2. Review Essential Information on naming ionic compounds with transition metals.

  3. Correctly name ten ionic compounds with transition metals in a row!

Once you get ten in a row, return to the Syllabus or continue to the next section (Formula Writing for Ionic Compounds with Transition Metals).

Essential Information

Keys for Naming Compounds with Transition Metals:

  • Write the name of transition metal as it appears on the Periodic Table.
  • Write the name and charge for the non-metal. If you have a polyatomic ion, use the Common Ion Table to find and write the formula and charge.
  • Use the total charge on the non-metal (or polyatomic ion) find the charge on the transition metal.
  • After the name for the metal, write its charge as a Roman Numeral in parentheses. Example: Iron (III) chloride
