Ligand bonds

Postby hannabarlow1A » Wed Jul 24, 2019 8:20 am

How do we know how many times a ligand can bond to a central metal atom? For example, in the 6th edition textbook, problem 17.33b asks for the maximum number of bonds CO3(2-) can form simultaneously.

I think all the polydentate are marked in the book on this table, apart from them, all other mono dentate have one binding site only.
