What do we have to know about chelates?

you should know that their naming convention would be different. Instead of using di, tri, etc, you would use bis, tris, tetrakis, etc. Should also know that they form rings when bonded to the central atom, and that they are polydentate

Chelates form when a ligand can bind to a metal atom at more than one site, creating a ring of atoms.

I thought we use bis tris etc when naming multiple of the same polydentate? or is this the same thing?

A few examples of biological importance we covered in class are necessary to know, at least.
