I understand that a neutralization reaction between an acid and a base will produce some type of salt (most commonly NaCl) and water (H2O). However, I am now dealing with a neutralization reaction which produces an acidic salt (a salt with a hydrogen proton) and water. I was wondering how this works, and how I would be able to tell which 2 acids & bases will produce this acidic salt. Can you give an example of the reactant side of the formula, and explain how I could figure out from the reactants whether they will produce an acidic salt, or a regular salt? Thank you.
