Etymology: Gk, ana + ion, backward going
a negatively charged ion that is attracted to the positive electrode (anode) in electrolysis. Compare cation. anionic, adj.

an·i·on

(A-) (an'ī-on)
An ion that carries a negative charge, going therefore to the positively charged anode; in salts, acid radicals are anions.

anion

A negatively charged ion that is attracted to an anode (positively-charged electrode), in electrolysis. Anions are usually shown as the second group in simple inorganic molecules, thus Cl- is the anion when common salt (NaCl) is dissociated in solution. Na+ is the CATION.

anion

a negatively charged ion that is attracted to the ANODE during electrolysis.

Anion

An ion carrying a negative charge owing to a surplus of electrons. Anions in the body include bicarbonate, chloride, phosphate, sulfate, certain organic acids, and certain protein compounds.

anion

a negatively charged ion, which is attracted to a positively charged anode, e.g. HSO4-, the anion of sulphuric acid

anion (aˑ·nēˈ·n),

n a negatively charged ion that is formed when an atom or a molecule gains one or more electrons. See also ion.

an·i·on

(Ā) (an'ī-on)
An ion that carries a negative charge, going therefore to the positively charged anode; in salts, acid radicals are anions.

anion (an´īən),
