zwitterionic compounds/zwitterions

Also contains definition of: dipolar ions
Neutral compounds having formal unit electrical charges of opposite sign. Some chemists restrict the term to compounds with the charges on non-adjacent atoms. Sometimes referred to as inner salts, dipolar ions (a misnomer). E.g. H3N+CH2C(=O)O ammonioacetate (glycine), (CH3)3N+–O trimethylamine oxide.
