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

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

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 :-D

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