### Written Formula to Chemical Formula

When going from the chemical formula, such as [Cr(NH3)3(OH2)2(OH)]Cl, to the written formula we write triamminediaquahydroxidochromium (II) chloride, with the ligands in alphabetical order, but how do we arrange the ligands when going from the written formula to the chemical formula?

You can arrange the ligands following the order in the name.
