Two solutions, one containing any combination of four different cations, and another containing any combination of four anions will be assigned to each student group. The two "unknown" solutions are then analyzed to determine which ions are present and which are absent. This experiment is carried out on a micro or semi-micro scale.   Precipitation reactions occur when cations and anions in aqueous solution combine to form an insoluble ionic solid called a precipitate. Whether or not such a reaction occurs can be determined by using the solubility rules for common ionic solids.

  Cations are smaller in size than anions. Anions are generally larger in size than cations. 7. Cations gain electrons and convert into neutral atoms or molecules. Anions generally lose electrons and convert into neutral atoms or molecules. 8. Cations form electrostatic or ionic bonds with anions to form ionic compounds. Ion exchange between nutrient sources (minerals and OM) and plant roots. As roots absorb nutrients from soil solution, nutrients adsorbed to the cation or anion exchange capacity are desorbed, nutrient-bearing minerals dissolve, and/or OM mineralization resupplies nutrients to soil solution. Ion exchange resins (seen above) will remove these minerals and clean up the water. Cation Formation. Cations are the positive ions formed by the loss of one or more electrons. The most commonly formed cations of the representative elements are those that involve the loss of all of the valence electrons. Consider the alkali metal sodium (Na).   Predicting Cations and Anions. Sometimes, you can predict whether an atom will form a cation or an anion based on its position on the periodic table. Alkali metals and alkaline earth metals always form cations. Halogens always form anions. Most other nonmetals typically form anions (e.g. oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur), while most metals form.

  Naming anions is slightly different than naming cations. The ending of the element's name is dropped and replaced with the -ide suffix. For example, \(\ce{F^-}\) is the fluoride ion, while \(\ce{O^{2-}}\) is the oxide ion. As is the case with cations, the charge on the anion is indicated by a superscript following the symbol. Cation exchange reactions are very important chemical reactions for the availability of plant nutrients in the soil. The capacity of soil to exchange cations is the best single index of soil fertility. Plant roots, when they come in contact with colloidal particles, absorb exchangeable cations directly by inter-exchange or contact exchange. The different chemical properties and reactions of various cations and anions enable you to distinguish between them using simple laboratory chemicals. It’s common to separate out these tests into cation tests (group 1, group 2 and the ammonium ion), anion tests (halides, nitrates, sulfates, etc.) and transition metal ion tests (iron(II), iron(III), copper, etc.). Other articles where Cation exchange is discussed: amphibole: Chemical composition: between titanium and other C-type cations. Aluminum can partially substitute for silicon in the tetrahedral (T) site. Partial substitution of fluorine (F), chlorine, and oxygen for hydroxyl (OH) in the hydroxyl site is also common. The complexity of the amphibole formula has given rise to numerous mineral.
