Chelating ligands

Postby salvadorramos3k » Sat Nov 30, 2019 11:30 pm

In the example Dr. Lavelle gave in class, it made sense what a chelating ligand should look like, but how can you tell when it is a chelating ligand if there is no atom in the center of the ring?

See my most recent answer on Chemistry Community:

All chelating ligands result in the transition metal cation as part of a ring structure.
