Naming polydentates

Postby Liam Maxwell 2E » Tue Nov 28, 2017 3:58 pm

If a ligand can function both as a polydentate and a monodenate, when naming it would you use the greek prefixes (bis, tris, etc.)?

I believe you name it based on the exact type that the ligand is acting as in the specific polydentate.
