What are some examples of Ion-dipole forces?

One good example of a ion-dipole interaction is the solvation of an ionic compound like sodium chloride in water.
The ##Na^(+)## ion is attracted to oxygen end of a water molecule because it has a negative dipole, while the ##Cl^(-)## ion is attracted to hydrogen end of a water molecule because it has a positive dipole.
