Quizlet for the names of Common Ligands

Postby Isayan_Natalie_3L » Tue Nov 15, 2016 5:46 pm

For those of you who haven't memorized the names of ligands yet, I made a quizlet.

Feel free to use the link above- so far I've only done the common ligands mentioned in the book, but I've been unable to incorporate subscripts and underlining into the flashcards. I tried to be as accurate and clear as possible. Hopefully, it helps more than it confuses you.

Are we expected to have all of these memorized for quiz 3 and/or final?

I'm sure we need to know them for Quiz 3. I'm pretty sure we need to know them for the final too.

Quick question, when naming the compounds, when do we use prefixes like bis- and suffixes like -ate for the anionic compounds?

We use prefixes like bis-, tris-, etc when the ligand is a polydentate and we need to indicate the number of ligands. For example, (en)2 would be bisethylenediamine because en is a bidentate (it binds at two sites and donates two electron pairs) and there are two of that ligand (which is why it is bis-).

We use the suffix -ate at the end of the metal name if the complex has a negative charge. For example, [Ni(CN)4]2- would be tetracyano nickelate (II) since the charge of the complex is -2.
