No. Water is a molecular compound. It is a polar molecule, in which the oxygen end of the molecule has a partial negative charge and the hydrogen end of the molecule has a partial positive charge. Despite the partial charges, water is not an ion.

What type of ion does a base contain?

1} A base if vdissolved in water will show the presence of OH- ion 2}a base if it is an oxide of a metal will show the presence of an O-- ion in fused state 3} if we are studying bases like the soda amide which is used in organic reactions then the ion it will form when dissolved in water will be again OH- ion NaNH2 +H2O------->NaOH+NH3, NaOH------>Na+ + OH- 4} NH3 is also a base but it has an e- pair on N which it donates to H+ when dissolved in water and forms NH4+ ion the H+ ion will be present in weakly dissociated water as water generally contains some salts in the natural state and that accounts for the slight dissociation of water
