  • (noun): A positively charged ion.

Some articles on cation, cations:

Multivalent - Common Valences
... For example, the Cs+ cation is a univalent or monovalent cation, whereas the Ca2+ cation is a divalent or polyvalent or multivalent cation and the Fe3+ cation is a trivalent or polyvalent or multivalent cation ... As a result, examples of polyvalent cations include the Ca2+ cation and the Fe3+ cation ...

Pi Interaction - Types
... interaction of a metal and the face of a π system, the metal can be a cation (known as cation-π interactions) or neutral Polar-π interactions involves interaction of a polar molecule and ... Anion-π interactions interaction of anion with π system Cation-π interactions interaction of a cation with a π system C-H-π interactions interaction of C-H ...
Cation-anion Radius Ratio
... In condensed matter physics the cation-anion radius ratio is the ratio of the ionic radius of the cation to the ionic radius of the anion in a cation-a ... is simply given by The allowed size of the cation is determined by the critical radius ratio ... If the cation is too small, then it will attract the anions into each other and they will collide hence the compound would collapse, this occurs when the radius ratio drops ...
