Naming Coordinate Compounds

Postby 204568380 » Tue Nov 17, 2015 10:27 pm

When naming coordination compounds, do we put it in alphabetical order (for example: triaqua) using the T in trip or the A in aqua?

Alphabetize using the first letters of the ligands. Act as if there are no prefixes. Or in other words, ignore the prefixes and strictly pay attention to the first letters of the atoms not prefixes!
