What kind of substances contains ions?
Almost any element can contain ions! For example the elements (elements are pure substance-there is only that one substance in them) on the periodic table (note:all the substances on the periodic table are elements) can all become ions, as ions are just normal elements that may gain a charge due to the imbalance of charges. An imbalance of charges may occur if an element loses or gains electrons.

Do elements in a group have different charges?
All the elements in the periodic table of elements are electrically neutral; they do not have charges as elements, although they have the potential to engage in chemical reactions that will turn them into charged ions, in most cases. The different groups tell you what kinds of chemical reactions the elements are capable of, not what kind of charge they have.
What are the charges of ions?
There are two types of charges of ions that are the negative and the positive charges. Ionic bonding is between 2 types of elements;the metals and non-metals. Metals loose electrons while non-metals gain electrons. when they form ions they obtain charges. The metals always gain a positive charge as they loose electrons while the non-metals always gain a negative charge as they gain electrons.
