Is a chelate just any polydentate ligand that has the ability to form a ring?

A chelate is basically just a complex containing one or more ligands that forma ring of atoms including the central metal atom.

Chelate formation lies behind the body's strategy of producing fever when infected by bacteria for example.

a chelate is just a complex with ligands that form a ring that includes the central metal atom or ion. only polydentate ligands can form chelates
