Monatomic and Polyatomic Ions

Monatomic and polyatomic ions, specifically for students of CHEM 127 at Cal Poly SLO, but useful for anyone. Note that only a subset of possible monatomic ions are included (there are numerous monatomic cations). Also, these flashcards don't have subscripts/superscripts which are, of course, required in real usage.
