Molecules or ions containing two or more atoms or groups capable of acting as ligands to appropriate metal atoms can form chelate complexes, if the geometrical relationships arè suitable. Otherwise, each such molecule or ion would be expected to link together two or more metal atoms. If enough metal atoms are linked together in this way, the product can be called “a coordination polymer” or polyion.
