The carbonate ion (CO32-) can act as either a monodentate or a bidentate ligand. Draw a picture of CO32- coordinating to a metal ion as a bidentate and as a monodentate ligand. The carbonate ion can also act as a bridge between two metal ions. Draw a picture of a CO32- ion bridging between two metal ions.
