Some general rules of thumb

  1. If the salt contains a cation of a strong base, and the anion of a strong acid, then the salt does not hydrolyze and the solution is neutral.
  2. If the salt contains a cation of a strong base and the anion of a weak acid, then the anion will hydrolyze and the solution will be basic.
  3. If the salt contains a cation of a weak base and the anion of a strong acid, then the cation will hydrolyze and the solution will be acidic.
  4. If the salt contains a cation of a weak base and the anion of a weak acid, then both the anion and cation will hydrolyze and the solution will be either acidic or basic, depending on the relative strengths.
