Ans:  
The ion formed after removal of Hydrogen ion (H⁺ ion) from an acid is called acid radical.
Ex: When HCl loses H⁺ ion, it forms Cl⁻ which is an acid radical.
 
Following given the list of acidic radicals.
 
Acid Acid radical
HCl Cl⁻
HNO₃ NO₃⁻
CH₃COOH CH₃COO⁻
H₂SO₄ SO₄⁻²
H₂CO₃ CO₃⁻²
HBr Br⁻
HF F⁻
HI I⁻
H₃PO₄ PO₄⁻³
HClO₄ ClO₄⁻
HNO₂ NO₂⁻
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The ion formed after removal of hydroxide ions (OH⁻ ions) from a base is called basic radical.
Ex: When NaOH loses OH⁻ ion, it forms Na⁺ which is a basic radical.
 
Base Basic radical
NaOH Na⁺
KOH K⁺
LiOH Li⁺
Mg(OH)₂ Mg⁺²
Ca(OH)₂ Ca⁺²
RbOH Rb⁺
CsOH Cs⁺
Ba(OH)₂ Ba⁺²
Fe(OH)₃ Fe⁺³
Cu(OH)₂ Cu⁺²
Zn(OH)₂ Zn⁺²
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Acid radical + Basic radical → Salt
 
 
 
 
Acid radical Basic radical Salt
Cl⁻ Na⁺ NaCl
NO₃⁻ K⁺ KNO₃
CH₃COO⁻ Li⁺ CH₃COOLi
SO₄⁻² Mg⁺² MgSO₄
CO₃⁻² Ca⁺² CaCO₃
Br⁻ Rb⁺ RbBr
F⁻ Cs⁺ CsF
I⁻ Ba⁺² BaI₂
PO₄⁻³ Fe⁺³ FePO₄
ClO₄⁻ Cu⁺² Cu(ClO₄)₂
NO₂⁻ Zn⁺² Zn(NO₂)2
