These are complex or co-ordinates compound. there are certain protocol which we need to follow while naming them. the syntax should be

 

 ligands+metal(oxidation state)

so for  [Ir(NH3)4(H2O)2](NO3)3 

The ligands are water and ammonia so, the naming will go in alphabetical order, that is 

tetraaminediaquairidium(III) nitrate

[Cr(NH3)5CO3]Cl 

it would be

pentaaminecarbonatochromium(III) chloride
