What are salts and how it reacts in a solution?

a salt is an ionic compound that results from the neutralization reaction of an acid and a base. When certain soluble salts are dissolved in water the resulting solution is not neutral. Depending on the composition of the salt (the ions which it is made up of) the solution will be either acidic or basic.  Soluble salts that contain anions derived from weak acids form solutions that are basic.  The anion is the conjugate base of a weak acid. A buffer solution is an aqueous solution consisting of a mixture of a weak acid and its conjugate base, or vice versa, and plays a role in resisting changes in pH when small quantities of an acid or an alkali are added to it.
