order of ligand name

Postby 505166714 » Sat Dec 08, 2018 11:56 am

When there are a neutral and a charged ligand in the coordination complex, should the neutral ligand be in front of the charged ligand regardless of the alphabetical order? relating to question 31(d) on the 6th edition book (page762)

I think in class Dr. Lavelle said to just name them in alphabetical order.

Just name them in alphabetical order, and then make sure that the transition metal is at the end. The charge of the ligands is unrelated to their order.

For the ligand names, just put them in alphabetical order ignoring any prefixes. Place the transition metal at the end.

They just go in alphabetical order, disregarding the prefixes.
