Portuguese term or phrase: iao
interaccao iao dipolo
desales
ion-dipole interaction
Explanation:
The Portuguese text contains a major typographical error ("iao," or more likely "ião", instead of "íon").

The concept is a common one in chemistry. See, for instance, the illustration at the web site below:

"...this is a typical ion-dipole
interaction. At the molecular level, the ions interact with water molecules ..."

Hope this helps,
HC

ião


Explanation:
A Vivian Cunha é que deve estar mais correta - merece os pontos. Deve ser português europeu, portanto não é "ion", como no Brasil, mas "ião".
Estou falando besteira, você quer inglês não português. Enfim quero salientar que talvez não tenha havido erro de datilô, mas só faltou o acento, para ficar "ião" de português lusitano.
