A ligand is a molecule that attaches to a metal cation to form a coordination compound. A ligand can be a mono or poly dentate, which means it "bites" to the metal in one place or in multiple places. This depends on the structure and flexibility of the ligand.
A ligand is a molecule that donates an electron pair in order to form a coordinate covalent bond with a Transition Metal Cation, which are found in the d-block. It is a Lewis base as it gives away an electron pair.
