In chemistry, a lyate ion is the anion derived by the deprotonation of a solvent molecule.[1] For example, a hydroxide ion is formed from the deprotonation of water and methoxide (CH3O) is the anion formed by the deprotonation of methanol. See also lyonium ion which is the cation formed by the protonation of a solvent molecule.
