Aqua versus Hydro in Coordination Compounds

Postby HoganFenster2E » Thu Nov 05, 2015 5:47 pm

In the course reader, it says that H2O's name is aqua, however it also is hydro sometimes. What is the difference between the two and when do I use each?

Do you have an example? You could be mixing up OH2 (aqua) with OH- (hydroxido)
