Naming of coordination compounds

Postby curry 1E » Sun Dec 01, 2019 8:52 pm

On the final how will we be asked to name compounds? Will we be given the formula first?

Yes, I believe we will be given the formula first.

I feel like just know both since it may be a curveball that may be thrown on the exam. A lot of YouTube videos go step by step doing both ways so you can always pause the video to see if you can do it both ways.

Although it would probably be best to ask a TA or Dr. Lavelle to know for sure about test material I would guess that we should know both how to go from the chemical equation to the name and vice versa. Especially given that the midterm was more complex than Tests 1 or 2 we should probably be able to draw a reasonable Lewis structure based on these equations as well.

The final could ask to name compounds either way. It’s best to know how to do both.
