French term or phrase: complexer

- is there, in chemistry, a verb such as "to complex" which fits here, or is this just bad French for "complexifier", "make more complex" ? Thanks!

Explanation:
Le verbe complexer est exact, bien sûr, il se rapporte à la chimie des complexes ou chimie de coordination. Mais "chélater" ou le franglais "coordiner" sont également employés.
