Is OH aqua or hydroxo?

Postby Aliya Habib 1L » Thu Dec 03, 2015 11:49 pm

In the course reader it says the name for Hydroxide ( )is hydroxo but as noted on my quiz and on the 2010 final it is referred to as aqua ... Can someone clarify this discrepancy??

(OH)- is hydroxo, while aqua is (H2O). Perhaps in the final it is written as (OH2)?
