Lyate ion

In chemistry, a lyate ion is the anion derived by the deprotonation of a solvent molecule.[1] For example, a hydroxide ion is formed by the deprotonation of water, and methoxide (CH3O) is the anion formed by the deprotonation of methanol.

Its counterpart is a lyonium ion, which is the cation formed by the protonation of a solvent molecule.
