Hi, for the compound sodium bisoxalato(diaqua)ferrate(III), I was wondering what it meant when diaqua was in parenthesis? Also, the book wrote the water part as OH2 instead of H2O. Would it be wrong if I wrote it as H2O?

Lastly, does order of the ligands matter when we're given the name and have to write the compound?
(c2o4 then h2o vs. h2o then c2o4)

Hi! They write OH2 to indicate that it's the O that bonds. So I think you have to write it like OH2. I think you write them in alphabetical order?? But I could be wrong about that.
