Is Nh4cl an Acid or Base?


Nh4cl is not a pure acid or a pure base. As a matter of fact, from this reaction, it can be defined as a neutral crytal salt that has some acidity level. It is also an aqueous solution. When it goes into water, the ammonium ion will cause it to form weak base. This because the NH4+ combines with OH- ions and this forms NH4OH which is not ionized and thus becomes a weak base.

Water contains equal amounts of OH- (alkali) and H+ (acid). The ammonium ion NH4+ tends to combine with OH- ions to form the un-ionised NH4OH. An excess of H+ remains. Source(s):
