The rule states that you should list your ligands in alphabetical order in the long name and write them in alphabetical order in the chemical formula, so why do some compounds ignore this rule (i.e., [Cr(F)3(I)(H2O)2], Li[Ni(CN)3(en)(NH3) and [FeCl3(H2O)3]-)?
I understand this rule, but for ligands with names that don't match their formulas like ammine and ethylenediamine, do you put the coordination compound formula in alphabetical order based on the name of the ligand or it's formula?
