Alphabetical Order in Naming?

Postby Sandeep Gurram 2E » Sat Nov 14, 2015 7:41 pm

Hello,

When naming a coordination compound, does a greek prefix play a role in the alphabetization? For example if a compound contained diammine and chloro, would the chloro come first since C comes before D? Or do we disregard the D and say that diammine comes before chloro? Thank You!

We ignore the greek prefixes when looking at alphabetical order. So diammine would come before chloro.
