Chelate (AS/A2 generic)
  Belongs to a sub-set of generics specific to the British A-Level exam system.




Complexes with bidentate of multidentate ligands which form five or six membered rings with the metal ligand are generally more stability than the equivalent complexes with monodentate ligands. This is known as the chelate (crab) effect. The argument is that chelate complexations are entropy driven processes: the complexation equilibrium is driven by the release of six small ligands, rather than by the enthalpy (heat release) of complexation.
