Nitro vs Nitrito

Postby Ashley Wang 4G » Sun Dec 08, 2019 10:07 pm

For NO2- ion, how do you know when it would bind with which atom (N or O)? i.e. when would you name it nitro or nitrito?

It would either underline N or O or it'll be written as NO2 or ONO (and the first element is the one that's bonded)

It will be written as NO2 when it's nitro and ONO when it's nitrito.

Nitrito will either be written as ONO or NO2 with the O atom underlined. Nitro will be written as NO2 with N underlined.

I believe he wants us to use Nitro for NO2 and nitrito for ONO

Does he place a lot of emphasis on the difference or will he take both
