Writing the formula of a coordination compound

Postby Anjum Farook 2O » Mon Nov 14, 2016 6:02 pm

When writing down the formula of a coordination compound, do we consider whether a ligand is neutral/anionic as well as the alphabetical order or is only the alphabetical order taken into consideration? I read somewhere that you write neutral ligands first, followed by anionic ones.

Also, for alphabetical order - do we consider the chemical symbols or the actual/written names of the ligands?
