Good evening!

I would like to know if in phosphate molecule there is formation of negative poles in oxygens and if they could react with cations.

Thank you!

phosphate is an ion not a molecule.

The ion can have ionic interactions with positive ions.

So if he can have ionic interactions with positive ions i believe these interactions happens with O- of phosphate. What is the maximum number of electrons O- can "borrow" or "share" with a cation?
