Note that this same principle of writing the ligands in alphabetical order applies when naming the compound. So, [Co(NH3)5Cl]Cl2 would be "pentaamminechlorocobalt(III)chloride" NOT "chloropentamminecobalt(III)chloride". The prefixes (mono-, di-, tri-, tetra-, penta-, etc.) are disregarded when alphabetizing, focus on the name of the molecule itself. (ex. (NH3)5 is first because of the "a" in ammine, not the "p" in penta).
