Coordrination Number (Polydentate ligands)

Postby Maeve Miller 1A » Sat Dec 07, 2019 12:25 pm

Some of the ligands that are polydentate affect the coordination number--like (en) and (ox). Are there any other specific examples we should know/memorize before the final?

Know everything on the chart under "naming coordination compounds" posted on the class website

So coordination numbers will be affected by polydentate ligands? (because the polydentate will attach to multiple sites of the transition metal)?
