Question on terminology..

    Hi everyone,

    I was just looking through some mark schemes, and had a question.
    When discussing the reduction of NADP, I've been taught to name the product as NADPH - this is the same for the reduction of NAD to NADH.

    Is it appropriate to do this? I'm not seeing many mark-schemes acknowledge that the two refer to the same product - only mentioning reduced NAD/NADP. I just wanted to confirm this because it would be foolish not to ask and risk losing marks.

    Are there any other particular terms, acronyms, etc, that you would avoid or be cautious about?
