Doing practice problems (particularly (9C9 from the TB) and came across the ligands en and edta a few times. What are these, how do we name them, and how would we draw them in a lewis structure?

en is ethylenediamine or NH2CH2CH2NH2. It is on the chart that Dr. Lavelle gave us for naming coordination compounds.
