Churro Review- 28

Postby keyaluo4C » Sun Dec 09, 2018 7:29 am

Question 28 is naming the compound
Co(NH2CH2CH2NH2)2(CN)(Cl)]Cl

And the answer posted is chlorocyanobisethylenediamminecobalt (III) chloride.

Why would the Cl and CN ligands be put before the ethylenediamine ligand? Would en not be first by alphabetical order?
