Chelates

Postby Minu Reddy » Mon Nov 07, 2016 11:23 am

I am a little confused on chelates and the monodentates and polydentates.

Are chelates and polydentates ligands that can form a coordinate covalent bond with a transition metal in more than 1 place?

In other words, the chelate is a name for a single ligand that has more than one electron rich atom that can form a coordinate covalent bond with a transition metal?

Thank you!

A chelate is simply a compound that contains a ligand that is bonded to a central transition metal atom at two or more points.

Chelates are rings that form as a result of polydentate ligands bonding to a metal ion.
