chelating compounds

Postby sarahsalama2E » Sun Nov 24, 2019 11:17 pm

when determining what can form a chelating complex, should the lone pairs be as close to one another as possible so that way it can attach to the atom on the same side? do the attachments have to happen on the same side of the atom always?

I think that it does not absolutely always have to be that the attachments are on the same side, but I think that it is better this way so that the bonds/forces will be stronger with more sites to attach to.
