How do you indicate that the reaction occurs in basic conditions for a cell diagram?

If the reaction happens in OH-(aq) or if the reactants or products can dissociate OH- after they are dissolved in water, then we see if OH- is involved in the reaction. If so, we include OH-(aq) in the cell diagram.
Hope this helps!
