Ligands are ions or molecules that are attached to the central metal atom. They usually have one or more lone pair electrons that bind to the central atom to form a coordinate covalent bond.

From what I understand a Ligand is a lewis base that forms at least one coordinate covalent bond with the central atom which is generally a d block element.

Ligands are neutral molecules/anions that bond to a central atom, forming a coordination complex.

The number of ligands are also represented by the X number in the AXE method.
