naming ligands

Postby Justin Chang 2K » Tue Nov 21, 2017 11:54 am

Hey guys!
So in the textbook on table 17.4, it says to use cyanido, fluorido, chlorido, bromido, etc... but in lecture I wrote down "use cyano, chloro, etc. when naming ligands". Maybe I just saw Dr. Lavelle's slides wrong, I'm not sure, but can anyone clarify the exact naming? Thank you!

There are different ways of naming coordination compounds. Lavelle showed us the most common way, but he said he will accept both on a test. Both are correct ways of naming coordination compounds still.
