Explain why ions with charges greater than ±3 are seldom found in ionic compounds.
Step 1 of 3
******Polyatomic Ion: More than one atom that have lost (cation) or gain (anion) electrons. -Most are Oxyanions: Contain oxygen and one other atom. They have “ate” names. Phosphate PO4(3-) Borate BO3(3-) Nitrate NO3(-) Sulfate SO4(2-) Carbonate CO3(2-) Chromate CrO4(2-) Chlorate ClO3(-) Different Numbers of Oxygens: One more than “ate” = per____ate One less than “ate” = ______ite One less than “ite” = hypo___ite -Hydrogen containing oxygens: Usually have one more positive than the Oxyanion name. To name, either add “hydrogen” first or prefi
