# What is the Arrhenius base that contains the lithium cation?

Mar 26, 2018

Lithium hydroxide

#### Explanation:

Arrhenius bases are bases that dissociate into hydroxide $\left(O {H}^{-}\right)$ ions in aqueous solutions.

So, an Arrhenius base with a lithium cation would be lithium hydroxide.

Lithium cation has a charge of $+ 1$, while a hydroxide ion has a charge of $- 1$, and so criss-crossing, we get $L i O H$.
