polydente

Are we supposed to be able to identify polydente compounds by the formula? Or do we have to draw it out.

Unless you know by memorizing a specific coordination compound, I don’t think you can just determine by looking at the formula. Drawing it out helps because it shows you the placement of the atoms and the compound’s structure.

You would probably have to draw it out to distinguish if there is a polydente.
