Auto-ionization of water
The self-ionization of water is an ionization reaction in pure water or an aqueous solution, in which a water molecule, H2O, deprotonates to become a hydroxide ion, OH−
ligand
In coordination chemistry, a ligand is an ion or molecule that binds to a central metal atom to form a coordination complex
single displacement reaction
A single-displacement reaction, also named single-replacement reaction, is a reaction by which a substance replaces a substance which replaces a substance in an element
electrochemical cell
An electrochemical cell is a device capable of either generating electrical energy from chemical reactions or facilitating chemical reactions through the introduction of electrical energy
amphoteric
In chemistry, an amphoteric compound is a molecule or ion that can react both as an acid as well as a base
