Ionic Compounds

Top  Previous  Next

To create ionic compounds, it is usually necessary to add a space between the cation and anion.  This prevents FX ChemStruct trying to bond the two pieces together and clearly shows the charge of each ion.


For example:


fe so3






In the second example, FX ChemStruct has tried to create one molecule out of the cation and anion and become "confused".  The space makes all the difference.
