A chelating complex is a molecule that is polydentate. Since it bonds in multiple places on the molecule it will form a sort of ring structure. This ring structure is a chelate.

a heme complex is a coordination complex consisting of an iron ion coordinated to a porphyrin. Porphyrin acts as a tetra dentate ligand.
