It says in the textbook that anionic ligands that end in -ide, -ate, -ite change their endings to -ido, -ato, ito respectively. I don't think this was covered in class; is this something different? When do we use this for?

This is how you would name it under the IUPAC Name Convention. Lavelle uses a different convention, but he says that he accepts both.

There is a sheet on Lavelle's website that has ligands and their names, including the IUPAC Name Convention.

Definitely look at the naming conventions chart on Dr. Lavelle's website: https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/wp-conten ... pounds.pdf

We use this for naming coordinate compounds. This is correct as it is the new version, but both versions can be used.

Both versions can be used, as they simply relate to old and new regulations of naming coordination compounds.

Did lavelle ever explicitly say that we had to memorize all the ligands on that worksheet?
