We can predict if a polydentate ligand has the ability to form chelates based on the bonds it has within itself. For example, the NH2-CH2-CH2-NH2 ligand was able to form a chelate with a cation metal because the bonds within that ligand composed of only sigma bonds, which allow rotation into a ring configuration that allows binding at two sites on the TM cation, forming a chelate.
