Which of the following ligand is bidentate?
Types of Ligands on the basis of Connectivity -
(i) Unidentate - ligand is bound to metal ion through a single donor atom.
(ii) Bidentate : when ligand can bind through two donor atoms
(iii) Polydentate - when ligand bind to two or more donor atoms
(iv) Hexadentate - type of polydentate having six donor atoms
(v) Ambidentate- which can ligate through two different atoms at a time
All ambidentate ligands are monodentate but all monodentate ligands are not ambidentate
When Ligands can bind through 2 donor atoms they are called bidentate ligands. Of those given only C2O-4 fits that criteria.
