would we need to know the uncertainty names for naming ligands/complexes on the final?

ex uncertainty within the atom of CN- for a ligand which the name is either cyanido-kC or isocyano;cyanido-kN

You don't need to know them, but I believe Lavelle gives us full credit if we use those names. On Lavelle's website, you can find a list of ligand names that Lavelle accepts.
