Inorganic Ligand Naming Question

  1. Sep 18, 2006 #1
    Naming the complexes with two different types of ligands confuse me. How do you tell which ligand to include first in the name? Which ligand do you write first in the brackets?

    Thanks for anyhelp

    Ligands should be listed in alphabetical order.
