  • The hydration reaction is defined as the transfer of an ion or neutral chemical species from the gaseous phase into water, Mn+(g) → Mn+(aq). In this process, water molecules bind to metal ions through ion-dipole bonds of mainly electrostatic character. The hydration reaction is always strongly exothermic with increasing heat of hydration with increasing charge density of the ion. The structures of the hydrated metal ions in aqueous solution display a variety of configurations depending on the… CONTINUE READING
