When listing the ligands in alphabetical order, do you go by just the name of the ligand or do you include the prefix? For example, would it be biethylene chloro because b comes before c or chloro biethylene because c comes before e?

So when naming in alphabetical order, you look at the element/compound described, not the prefix. So in your example, you would put chloro first.

When it comes to alphabetizing, you look at the beginning of the compound itself, not the prefixes used.

Don't use the prefixes when listing in alphabetical order
