Latin Names of Atoms

Postby Jason Wu 1E » Sat Nov 23, 2019 7:02 pm

When we place ligand names in alphabetical order, are we supposed to use the English names or are we supposed to use the Latin names for elements (ie Mercury vs. Hydrargyrum). If so which ones are we supposed to remember?

I think we only need to know the English name.

^^ in Lavelle's lectures I feel like he uses the English name, plus the book uses the English name from what I've seen

The main Latin version of the name is not necessary to know

You only really need to know the English name as opposed to its Latin name.
