Salts are basically just ionic compounds such as NaCl. They raise or lower pH by ionizing in solution and either creating more hydronium or hydroxide ions. An example of an acidic salt would be NH4Cl. In solution, the NH4 would donate its H proton to H20 creating H30+. more acidic!
Salts are ionic compounds formed by a neutralization reaction between an acid an a base, such as NaCl, or common table salt. Salts can either raise or lower the pH of a solution - if the salt of a strong base and weak acid is dissolved in water, it will form an alkaline (basic) solution, whereas, the salt of a weak base and strong acid will form an acidic solution.
