Carboxylic Acids and their Derivatives
Salts and Esters Rule C-461 461.1 - Neutral salts of carboxylic, amic, imidic, carboximidic, hydroxamic, carbohydroxamic, etc., acids are named by citing the
cation(s) and then the anion (see Rule C-84.1) or, when the carboxyl groups of the acid are not all named as affixes, by use of a periphrase, such as "(metal) salt of (the acid)". When
different acidic residues are present in one structure, prefixes are formed by changing the anion ending "-ate" to "-ato-" or "-ide" to "-ido-" (see Rule C-86.1); the prefix "carboxylato-"
may be used to denote the ionic group .
See Recommendations'93 R-5.7.1
