SALTS

General Preparation of Salts

Salts are generally ionic compounds formed by the reaction of an acid with a base.

The preparation of these salts involves the treating of different metals and non-metals and their compounds with various acids, bases etc.

However, some of them can be prepared by direct combination of the concerned elements or also by indirect routes.
