Is NaI an acid or base or salt?
NaI is neither an acid nor a base. It is a neutral salt composed of sodium ions (Na+) and iodide ions (I–). NaI is made up of the neutralization of strong acid (HI) and strong base (NaOH).
When a strong acid and a strong base react, a neutral salt is formed, and the pH of the solution remains at 7, according to the concept.
I recommend checking the article – How to tell if salt is acidic, basic, or neutral?
Also, check this video to understand why NaI is a neutral salt.
