Toolbox 17.1 from Chemistry Textbook

Postby William Lan 2l » Mon Nov 20, 2017 9:55 pm

This toolbox breaks naming coordination compounds into 2 procedures. Procedure A is called "Writing the formula" and procedure B is called "Naming the complex". Do we need to know how to do procedure A and B or just procedure B??

I think both. I don't know if we'll specifically be asked to write the formula just from a lewis structure but it's probably useful to be familiar with. One of the ch 17 exercises gives you the name and tells you to write the formula

Procedures A and B are just inverses of each other. I think we need to know both how to get to the formula from the name and how to get to the name from the formula.
