Bis- , tris- tetrakis-, pentakis- are used if the ligand has the same prefix as the polydentate so you wouldn't be using the prefix "di " twice to name a compound. The ligand would be named with di and then name the polydentate with "bis".

An example could be the compound ChloroBISethyleneDIaminecobalt(III)Sulfate. Because the ligand has the same prefix as the polydentate (di-), the second prefix, bis- is used.
