Coordination Compounds

Postby Sonia Perez 1G » Tue Nov 10, 2015 6:16 pm

Hello, when naming [Co(SO4)(NH3)5]+ does the order of the ligands matter?
Can the name be pentaaminne sulfato cobalt(iii) ion or pentaammine cobalt(iii) sulfato ion?

Yes, When naming the coordination compounds, the ligands must be in alphabetical order and then the metal is named. So the answer would be pentaamminesulfatocobalt(III) because Co is the TM in this complex and is mentioned last.

What are you using to memorize all of these compounds?
