Ligand Names

Postby Janice Xiao 1I » Fri Dec 08, 2017 10:13 pm

When naming the compounds with the ligands ethylenediamine, diethylenetriamine, and ethylenediaminetetraacetato, can we abbreviate them as (en), (dien), and (edta), or should we write out the full name?

I'm pretty sure we can use the abbreviations

I believe that if you write out the full name, it can only help you instead of hurt you because my TA discussed in our section that he wasn't fully sure but that it's probably safer if you write out the whole ligand. However, whatever you choose, the idea is that you remain consistent as with most ligand nomenclature.
