    Do salts produce any H+ ions or OH- ions when dissolved in the water my textbook says they don't produce anything?

    Salts are usually aqueous anyway and very rarely produce ions, for the sale of exams they don’t produce anything

    It depends on your level.

    A' level (and equivalent) students should know that salts of weak acids and strong bases are basic in solution and salts of strong acids and weak bases are acidic in solution.

    This is caused by hdrolysis of the salt ions that DO produce OH- ions in the first case and H+ ions in the latter.
