Is NaI an acid or base or salt?

Home  > Chemistry Questions > NaI acid or base?

NaI is neither an acid nor a base. It is a neutral salt. NaI is made up of the neutralization of strong acid (HI) and strong base (NaOH).

According to concept, strong acid and strong base will form neutral salt. So, pH of the solution will remain equal to 7.

I recommend to check the article – How to tell if salt is acidic, basic, or neutral?

Also, check this video to understand why NaI is a neutral salt.
