    anión masculine
    • The functional groups of iron hydroxides may sequestrate some cations and anions.
    • It's easy to make a high oxidation state in an anion because an anion is electron-rich.
    • 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.
    • Cations within the middle solution are attracted to one electrode and anions to the other.
    • An ionic compound is composed of a network of ions that results in a three-dimensional matrix of cations and anions.
    • 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.
    • During electrolysis an anion is attracted to the anode (positive electrode).
    • When two atoms swap electrons to produce a cation and an anion, the two ions are attracted to each other.
    • 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.
    • The molecules or anions attached to the central atom are called coordinating groups or ligands.
    • 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.
    • The cation is positively charged, and the anion is negatively charged.
    • It is called a cation if a positive charge exists and an anion if a negative charge exists.
    • Nitric oxide can react with superoxide anions to produce peroxynitrite anions, thus quenching the biological effects of NO.
    • Cations and anions can only exist in ionic compounds, nearly all of which are solids at room temperature, or in solution.
    • In an ionic compound there are two different types of ions present, the positively charged cations and the negatively charged 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.
    • 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.
