ELECTROLYTES When sodium chloride (NaCl – common salt) is dissolved in water, the two atoms separate. This process is known as ionisation and results in two charged particles or ions. Sodium has the positive charge Na+ and chloride has the negative charge Cl−. Sodium (Na), with the positive charge, is termed a cation because it will be attracted to a negative cathode whereas chloride (Cl), with the negative charge, is termed an anion, as it will be attracted to the positive anode.
