3. Salt Properties and Examples

Hydrolysis of a Salt

Hydrolysis of salt refers to the reaction of salt with water. It is the reverse of a neutralization reaction. In this reaction, when salt undergoes reaction with water, the constituent acid and base are formed as products. In hydrolysis, the salt dissociates to form ions, completely or partially depending upon the solubility product of that salt.
