What specific compounds/ligands do we need to know for the final?

I know from lectures and the course outline we need to know about cisplatin, EDTA which is hexadentate, and porphyrin which is bidentate and involved in the heme complex, and what else?

Professor Lavelle posted this pdf on his website with all of the ligands and their names on his website: https://lavelle.chem.ucla.edu/wp-conten ... pounds.pdf

I believe porphyrin is tetradentate from what I remember during the review session!

Yes, porphyrin is tetradentate! It forms a "ring" (chelating ligand) that gives blood its red color.

Is cisplatin a chelating ligand or is it a complex compound?

Cisplatin isn't a chelating ligand because there are no polydentate ligands in it
