What is an antifluorite?

An antifluorite is a type of crystal structure in which the cations and anions in a crystal lattice are arranged in a specific pattern. In an antifluorite structure, the anions occupy the positions that cations would normally occupy, and vice versa. This results in a reversed or "anti" arrangement compared to the more common structure of fluorite.

Will anions alone in a solution conduct electricity or do both anions and cations need to be present?

Anions alone in a solution could conduct electricity, if they were in contact with suitable electrodes. In general, however, anions alone in solution cannot exist for long, because the electrical potential of the resulting solution would be too high to be stable. One of the few practical exceptions occurs when cations can not dissolve because they are part of a polymer that has too high a molecular weight to be soluble in water, but the anions are soluble. If a polymer of this type is made into a thin and porous membrane, the anions can conduct electricity through the membrane, but only between the membrane and (i) an electrode or (ii) a solution that contains both anions and cations.
