In lecture today, I thought I heard Dr. Lavelle say that (SO4)2- could pull a proton off of water to make a solution basic. I thought that Na2SO4 would be a neutral salt because Na+ comes from a strong base (NaOH) and (SO4)2- comes from a strong acid (H2SO4). I also found a few sources on the Internet that said Na2SO4 would be a neutral salt. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could clarify this for me!
I believe that Na2SO4 is neutral because it is a salt that comes from a strong base and a strong acid. This will create a ph of 7 when dissolved in a solution and the solution will remain neutral.
Na2SO42- would be the neutral salt that occurs when the strong acid and strong base are combined into one solution. The result of the combination of a strong acid and strong base would be the salt and H20 at the stoichiometric point where the pH is neutral
