salts & conjugate base

Postby Maldonado3K » Sun Jun 10, 2018 11:54 pm

Can someone explain and give a thourough example of what is meant by "salts that contain the conjugate base (anion) of a weak acid will raise the pH by removing protons from water and generate -OH."

Salts usually dissociate into its two parts in water. Conjugate bases accept Protons and would thus take it from the water making OH ions. OH ions are associated with bases and would thus raise the pH.
