Expert Answer:

Salts are ionic compounds which are produced after the neutralization reaction between acid and base. Example is NaCl sodium chloride salt. Some special features of salts:

  • Most of the salts are crystalline solid.
  • Salts may be transparent or opaque.
  • Most of the salts are soluble in water.
  • Solution of salts conducts electricity. Salts conduct electricity in their molten state also.
  • The salt may be salty, sour, sweet, bitter and umami (savoury).
  • Neutral salts are odourless.
  • Salts can be colourless or of coloured.
