OH2 naming

Postby Katherine Wu 1H » Mon Nov 25, 2019 5:36 pm

For [Co(CN)5(OH2)]^-2, would the OH2 be named aqua or would it remain hydroxide?
So, would the name be penta cyano hydroxide cobalt (II) or penta cyano aqua cobalt (II)?

OH2 Is the same as h20 written in a different order, so it would not be hydroxide as hydroxide has a different chemical formula of OH- one H versus the 2 in OH2
