What happens when ionic salts in solution decays? For example, if I had a handful of Francium-223 Palmitate(Francium salt of palmitic acid) and I were to put it in solution, how would the francium decay? Since the francium is in solution, the francium would exist as an ion and if it decays, I would think that it would stay as an ion and become either At+ or Ra+. And after that, what would happen to the Palmitate ion? Would it still be ionically bonded with the decay products?
EDIT: I was thinking of the saponification reaction when making this thread, as in the FrOH would react with tripalmitin, but then again I saw some comments saying that the radioactive decay of francium would blow up the Francium Palmitate, and I wasn't thinking too much when creating this thread, so I'll rephrase this. I was thinking about the radioactive decay of salts, like for example if you were to hypothetically dissolve FrCl (yes it will evaporate the water but that wasn't my question) in water(if it exists and/or is soluble in water), since it is in solution, the electron from Francium would end up sticking with the Chlorine atom, creating a Chloride anion and a Francium cation. And I was asking what would happen to the Francium cation, after the radioactive decay. Would it keep it's positive charge? And what would happen to the salt if the Francium cation actually kept its charge after the decay? If it doesn't keep the charge, what would happen to the chlorine radical? (I don't know much about chemistry so pls be nice)
