The 2 in the front is not needed it just lists the group. You can just drop the 2 off in the front. Just matters if you accurately know the geometric shape and the electron densities.

Re: Polydentates

I know this is not completely accurate, but I usually look for Nitrogen atoms since usually they have lone pairs that can be used for bonding sites. If there is 2 or more Nitrogen then it would be considered polydentate.

It is important to know that it is a bidentate due to the Nitrogen's ability to bind to other atoms due to their lone pairs. The lone pairs are on separate atoms and not the same Nitrogen atom, but both of them.
