Ligands

Postby emmajanibekyan_4I » Sun Nov 13, 2016 9:42 pm

I'm still a bit confused on what ligands are. Can anybody clarify what they are used to identify?

Ligands are electron rich species that bind to transition metal cations by forming coordinate covalent bonds

Inside a coordination complex ligands are the species that bind to the transition metal.
