Chelating ligands

Postby Rebecca Epner 4A » Mon Nov 25, 2019 4:48 pm

Are all polydentate ligands chelating ligands? What if a ligand has multiple binding sites but is unable to form a ring? Or is that not a possibility?

It is possible for a polydentate ligand to not be a chelating ligand. A good example of this is in Textbook Question 9C.7, where certain isomers are unable to form a ring based on their structure.
