What is this?

Postby Timmy Nguyen Dis 1I » Sat Nov 30, 2019 8:41 pm

What exactly do we have to know regarding ligands, coordination numbers, etc?

You should memorize a few of the common ligands for naming purposes (my TA recommended that we memorize I-, Cl-, Br-, OH-, CN-, C2O4-, H2O, NH3, CO, en). You should know which coordination compounds/ligands can be polydentate due to structure. For coordination number you just need to know how many bonds are formed, so be able to draw lewis structures of the coordination compound.

I would review outline 5 on the class website, it details what we need to know regarding coordination compounds, etc.

I don't know if there's a way to bookmark posts, so I'm just replying so I can easily access this through my posts later. Thanks for the list!!

I would make sure to know the chart that he has posted on the website when it comes to naming

For linkage ligands, how would you know in what order to write the compound?
