Who wants to give the full ligand name and identify the atoms that coordinate to the transition metal cation?

The full ligand name is diethylenetriamine. The lone pairs on the 3 nitrogen atoms allow the nitrogens to serve as bond sites and coordinate to the transition metal cation, making dien a tridentate ligand.
