The answer is "copper(i) carbonate".The compound is Cu₂CO₃. Cation = Cu⁺ Anions = CO₃2⁻First we have to indicate the name of the cation. The cation is copper. Charge on the cation in Cu₂CO₃ is +1. Therefore, the name of the cation is the copper(i).Below, we will name the anion of the compound. The anion is the carbonate.When you assign a name to the whole complex in the first state of the cation and to maintain a space. After the space, the name of the anion.Therefore Cu₂CO₃ can be named as the copper(i) carbonate.
