Polydentate Ligands(17.33)

Postby Humza_Khan_2J » Mon Nov 27, 2017 2:40 pm

How do we go about determining whether a particular ligand is a monodentate, bi, tri, etc. ligand? I've drawn out Lewis Dot Structures for all molecules and see that, for example, CO3^2- has a CO double bond and 2 CO single bonds, all of which have the appropriate number of lone pairs. How do we go from the number of lone pairs and bonds to determining the nature of the ligand?
