We’re being asked to determine the effect of increasing acidity on the solubility of the following compounds.


For an ionic compound to be more soluble in acidic solution, it must contain a basic ion or be a basic salt.


The acidic ions are usually cations and include:

1. Transition metals with a charge of +2 or higher. Transition metals not satisfying this condition are neutral.

2. Main group metals with a charge of +3 or higher. Main group metals not satisfying this condition are neutral.

3. Amines, which are compounds that contain only N and H (i.e. NH­3) or C, N, and H (i.e. CH3NH2)


To determine if an anion is a basic ion, we should add H+ to it. 

If the addition of H+ leads to:

1. a weak acid, the anion is basic.

2. a strong acid, the anion is neutral.
