Identifying Polydentates

Postby Jessica Castellanos » Sat Dec 07, 2019 9:15 am

How do you identify a polydentate and how many times it can attach itself (bidentate, tridentate etc.)?

A polydentate ligand refers to ligands with more than one donor atom, meaning its elements can occupy more than one binding site simultaneously. They are typically ligands that have a central atom with a lone pair. To determine the number, it is just how bonds the polydentate can form.
