Answer

A ion-dipole force is an attractive force which results from the electrostatic attraction between an ion and a neutral molecule which has a dipole. A positive ion (cation) attracts the partially negative end of a neutral polar molecule. A negative ion (anion) attracts the partially positive end of a neutral polar molecule. These forces are present in solutions containing polar compounds.
