Memorizing ligand names

Postby Ashley Wang 4G » Sun Dec 01, 2019 8:21 pm

Hi,

For the final, are we expected to memorize the common ligand names? Or will we be given a chart similar to the one Dr. Lavelle sent out?
I was wondering because it might be considered too easy if we're given a chart, so I wasn't sure.

Thank you!

The only information we will have on the final will be the same equation sheet we have had for the previous exams, and there is no ligand naming sheet on it so it is extremely unlikely one would be provided.

My TA did confirm that we need to memorize the common ligand names as provided on page 724 of our textbook for the final exam. Fun stuff!

If you go online to YouTube there are a lot of helpful videos that organize all the different ligand names based of similarities and all that and if it has one negative change or two. The guy recommended just doing flashcards for each one till it come naturally. It's a bummer but I guess just something that has to be memorized.

We won't be provided a chart so we have to have the common ligands memorized.

We are expected to know how to name ligands.
