If you look at \[CuCl _{3}\] you realize it is neutral you do not see a +1,+2,-1,-2 etc What do you think the charge would be for Cu since it is a transition metal?

This is non neutral molecule \[CuCl _{3}^{-1}\] Cu would be the anion since they gain an electron to be neutral Cl would be a cation since it gains an electron in order to be neutral

Mostly correct, @Shalante You use the charge of what the transition metal is bonded to.

In this example, the Cl has a charge of -1, so the Cu needs a charge of 2+ to balance it out

I know that. I am making him/her guess it out.

But you said the Cu is an anion. It's not. It is a cation.
JoannaBlackwelder
  • JoannaBlackwelder
And Cl is a anion because it has a negative chare

In chemical terms, if a neutral atom loses one or more electrons, it has a net positive charge and is known as a cation. If an atom gains electrons, it has a net negative charge and is known as an anion. That is what I meant. Cu does gain electron to neutralize with Cl

Ionic bond: bond in which one or more electrons from one atom are removed and attached to another atom, resulting in positive and negative ions which attract each other

Oh wait I mistaken it. You are right.
