ag3p compound name

A coordination compound has one central atom bound directly to a set of groups called ligands. It is named in accordance with the rules set out by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC).

In naming ionic compounds, it is necessary to break down the formula into its components, namely the cation and anion. The ionic compound of silver and phosphorus is known as silver(I) phosphide. The molecular formula for this compound is CU3P. It is yellowish-grey in colour with a brittle crystalline structure. It is soluble in ethanol, but not water. It shows fluorescence when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. It can be created photochemically by irradiating cupric hypophosphite with ultraviolet light, or it may be prepared by calcining copper(II) phosphate. It is highly toxic and should only be handled by a suitably qualified person because it reacts rapidly with water to form phosphine gas.

When naming binary ionic compounds containing a metal and a non-metal, the cation is named first (specifying the charge, if necessary) followed by the non-metal anion. In the case of the element aluminium, it forms two possible ions: 2+ and 3+. It is not possible to tell the oxidation state of the aluminium ion from its name, so it is given a systematic name of iron(II) or iron(III). The name of the anion is formed by adding the suffix -ide to the root name of the element. For anions whose names end in -ate, this is replaced by the suffix -ic or -ous in forming the acid names. For example, H2SO4 contains the sulfate anion and is therefore called sulfurous acid; H3PO4 contains the phosphate anion and is called phosphoric acid.
