In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- It is called a cation if a positive charge exists and an anion if a negative charge exists.
- Protons diffuse across a membrane from the anode chamber to the cathode chamber, where they react with the anions to form water or ferrocyanide ions.
- A typical reaction of such compounds is to accept an additional electron from an anion or to share electrons with an anion to gain a stable octet.
- For ions dissolved in water, the rapid exchange of water molecules around the cation usually provides the space for an anion to approach the cation.
- It's easy to make a high oxidation state in an anion because an anion is electron-rich.
- During electrolysis an anion is attracted to the anode (positive electrode).
- An ionic compound is composed of a network of ions that results in a three-dimensional matrix of cations and anions.
- These water molecules are ripped apart and change into hydroxyl anions, each of which is negatively charged and has one oxygen ion with a proton attached.
- Cations within the middle solution are attracted to one electrode and anions to the other.
- When two atoms swap electrons to produce a cation and an anion, the two ions are attracted to each other.
- The molecules or anions attached to the central atom are called coordinating groups or ligands.
- Nitric oxide can react with superoxide anions to produce peroxynitrite anions, thus quenching the biological effects of NO.
- All the positively charged ions, or cations, are together on the right side of the collage, and all the negatively charged ions, or anions, are on the left.
- To balance the influx of positive charge, organic anions, principally malate, and chloride are also accumulated.
- Non-metals accept electrons in forming anions while metals donate electrons to form cations.
- Crystals of table salt consist of equal numbers of sodium cations and chlorine anions, cation-anion pairs being held together by a force of attraction.
- In an ionic compound there are two different types of ions present, the positively charged cations and the negatively charged anions.
- The cation is positively charged, and the anion is negatively charged.
- Cations and anions can only exist in ionic compounds, nearly all of which are solids at room temperature, or in solution.
- The functional groups of iron hydroxides may sequestrate some cations and anions.
