Mono for Ligands with only one

Postby Brandon Valafar » Tue Dec 03, 2019 12:20 am

I've noticed that for some problems in the textbook that they do not add the "mono-" prefix when specifying how many of a ligand are in a compound. They simply just write the name of the ligand instead. Should we still write mono- when naming them regardless?

I don't think it is necessary, seeing as how the homework and lecture omit the mono prefix. It seems like it would be too redundant especially with the length of some ligand names.
