Which of the following ligands can be polydentate? If the ligand can be polydentate, give the maximum number of places on the ligand that can bind simultaneously to a single metal center: (a) HN(CH2CH2NH2)2; (b) CO3-2; (c) H2O; (d) oxalate.

(a) Tridentate ligand because the 3 Nitrogens have lone pairs.
(b) Mono/bidentate ligand because it can bind to one or two oxygen atoms.
(c) Monodentate ligand because oxygen can only bind to one more atom
(d) bidentate ligand because 2 oxygen have a double bond and 2 others have a single bond
