What is the correct "stock" name for #SnBr_4#? (meaning, include roman numerals)

1 Answer


#"Tin(IV) bromide"#


Or #"stannic bromide"#; I am actually clueless as to what you mean by #"stock name"#.

Added note:
Stock system refers to the use of roman numerals to indicate the oxidation state of the metal ion. The system was named for the German chemist Alfred Stock who developed the system and published it in 1919.

The Latin or traditional naming system uses Latin names for metals (stannum for tin, aurum for gold, ferrum for iron etc.)

This video discusses additional examples of how to use the stock system for naming compounds.

Hope this helps!
