      bi- and bis- means the same. Bi- is used for smaller ligands, while bis- is for larger ligands.

      The sugar should be spelled ribulose. I don’t think there is an acceptable alternative (Jack would know for sure, he’s a plant phys guy).

      yeah, you’re right, I didn’t notice the misspell. And I was wondering, what was the difference 😀

      that really helped
      but that misspell was by mistake not on purpose.
      thanks guys.

      actually, I wasn’t really correct. The prefix should not be bi-, but di-, thus the first name is wrong.

      But my I was told that bi and di mean the same.
      Could u please elaborate on this part.I really want this confusion to end once and for all.
