what is A basic radical that has a net positive charge on it
The lons formed after the removal or detachment of hydroxide lon (OH-)from a base is known as basic radical.
· For example when NaOH is lonlsed, it forms Na+ and OH- lons. Here, NaOH loses OH- lon to form Na+ lon which is known as basic radical.
· Some basic radicals are Na+, Ba++, Cu++,K+, Fe++, etc.
· Basic radicals have positive charge on them.
· On electrolysis of a compound it is found that basic radical got deposited on cathode.
· Radicals commonly display paramagnetism. Electron spin resonance is the conclusive and broadly utilized strategy for describing radicals. The idea of the bearing the unpaired electron and its neighbouring atoms can frequently the concluded by the EPR range.
· Therefore, basic radicals have positive charge on them.
