Old vs New

Postby Aedra Li 3H » Thu Dec 05, 2019 5:35 pm

Does it matter whether or not we use the old names over the new names for the ligands? How significant is the difference?

To my knowledge, there really isn't much of a difference in terms of accuracy with either form. I'm pretty sure we can use either form on the exam but most of the stuff we did in lecture is according to the old form.

I believe there isn't a difference and have seen Lavelle use the old ones in the lecture slides as well. I'm sure both naming methods will be accepted on the exam.
