Naming CN-

Postby Michelle_Li_1H » Sun Nov 13, 2016 12:04 am

I was wondering if there was a difference between cyanido and cyano? The book uses cyanido while the course reader uses cyano. Would it be wrong if we used one instead of the other? Thanks!

I do believe that cyano and cyanido are the same thing, just cyano is the old way of naming CN-.
