naming coordination compounds for the final

Postby taline_n » Sun Dec 02, 2018 10:32 am

On the syllabus it says we should " be familiar with the rules for naming coordination compounds". What exactly does this entail? Should we know how to name complicated compounds, or will we just be asked to state the general rules for naming?

Be able to fully name compounds is the best way to make sure you are ready for the final. There are good example questions in the book to help you.

I believe we will be expected to know how to use anything covered in the lecture notes - we went over the rules of naming coordinate compounds so it is probably best to know these rules and be able to use them.

It means that you must be able to write out the exact order of a compound from left to right. Knowing the general rules for naming them is helpful, but it is more about the application of those rules on the exam. There are many helpful examples provided in the book to give you a better picture of what those naming examples are like.
