naming the ligands

Postby Chloe Qiao 4C » Thu Dec 06, 2018 7:04 pm

When asked to name the ligands of a coordination compound, do we name them as charged or uncharged?

I don't think the charge is necessary to include in the nae of the ligands, but it is important when determining the oxidation number/charge of the transition metal when providing the roman numeral of it.
