Solubility Rules:

Soluble Ionic Compounds:

 Group 1A ions (Li+, Na+, K+, etc.) and Ammonium ion (NH4+) are soluble
Nitrates (NO3-), Acetates (CH3COO- or C2H3O2-), and most Perchlorates (ClO4-) are soluble
Cl-, Br-, and I- are soluble except when paired with Ag+, Pb2+, Cu+, Hg22+
Sulfates (SO42-) are soluble except those of Ca2+, Sr2+, Ba2+, Ag+, and Pb2+

• Insoluble Ionic Compounds:

Hydroxides (OH-) and Sulfides (S2-) are insoluble except when with Group 1A ions (Li+, Na+, K+, etc.) and ammonium ion (NH4+) and Ca2+, Sr2+, Ba2+
Carbonates (CO32-) and Phosphates (PO43-) are insoluble except when with Group 1A ions (Li+, Na+, K+, etc.) and ammonium ion (NH4+)
