Naming order

Postby Adam Kramer 1A » Sat Nov 23, 2019 8:08 pm

I saw another chemistry community post where people were saying it doesn't matter what order the elements in the molecular formula were written, but I thought Lavelle had mentioned that the molecular formula was written in an order that put connected atoms next to each other so you could draw the structure from the formula. Could someone clarify this for me?

IIRC he said something about naming the ligands alphabetically but ignoring the greek prefixes

The ligands should be ordered alphabetically
