Naming Ligands

Postby diegomartinez1F » Mon Jul 24, 2017 11:49 pm

should you always add "ion" at the end when naming a ligand or does that only apply in certain cases?

You only add "ion" when naming a ligand that is a coordinate covalent compound by itself as an ion without binding to a respective anion or cation.
For example, [Co(NH3)5Cl]+ would be labeled as pentaamminechlorocobaltate(II) ion.
