Salt (chemistry)

  • the salt potassium dichromate has the bright orange color characteristic of the dichromate anion.

    in chemistry, a salt is a solid chemical compound consisting of an ionic assembly of cations and anions.[1] salts are composed of related numbers of cations (positively charged ions) and anions (negatively charged ions) so that the product is electrically neutral (without a net charge). these component ions can be inorganic, such as chloride (cl), or organic, such as acetate (ch
