mono- prefix

Postby danicatran4 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:18 pm

When are we supposed to use the mono prefix? Is it just if the first ligand in alphabetical order is singular? Will we get marked incorrect if we always include the prefix?

The prefix is used when there is one ligand type in the complex ion. It would probably be best to include it to be as specific as possible.

I thought that the prefix mono- was only used when naming what type of dentate the ligand is, such as monodentate, bidentate, or tridentate.
