In chemistry, a lyonium ion is the cation derived by the protonation of a solvent molecule.[1] For example, a hydronium ion is formed from the protonation of water and CH
is the cation formed by the protonation of methanol. Lyate ion which is the anion formed by the deprotonation of a solvent molecule. These ions resulting from molecular autoionization contribute to the molar conductivity of protolytic solvents.
