Can we use bis(tetraammine) instead of octaammine is the 2nd example ?

As in the 1st example they used bis(pentaammine) and also in the 3 one the used bis(carbonylcyclopentadienyliron)

  • $\begingroup$ Btw, IUPAC Red Book 2005 mentions probably the same complex ion 1. [{Cr(NH₃)₅}₂(μ-OH)]⁵⁺, but the name contains complex net charge instead of metal oxidation state: μ-hydroxido-bis(pentaamminechromium)(5+). Most importantly, the parentheses seem to be incorrect in the question. $\endgroup$ – mykhal Oct 9 '18 at 15:19
  • $\begingroup$ @mykhal Yes I think the parentheses is incorrect It should be like the 3rd example , but still I am confused . $\endgroup$ – Chloritone_360 Oct 9 '18 at 15:44
