Solubility Rules

1. All group 1.A( alkali metals), NH4+, NO3-, C2H3O2-, ClO3-, and ClO4- ions are soluble.

2. The halogens: Br-(bromides), Cl-(chlorides), and I-(Iodides) are soluble except when combined with Ag+, Hg2+2, Hg+2, Pb+2, and Pb+4

3. Sulfates(SO4-2) are soluble except with Ba+2, Sr+2, Ca+2, Ag, Hg2+2, Hg+2, Pb+2, and Pb+4

4. Sulfides(S-2) are insoluble except with Ca+2,Sr+2, Mg+2, alkali metals, and NH4+

5. All compounds containig PO4-3, CO3-2, SO3-2 ions are insoluble except those that contain NH4+ and alkali metals.

6. All hydroxides are insoluble except compounds containing Ca+2,Sr+2,Ba+2, and alkali metals. The alkaline earth metals are slightly soluble being able to slightly dissociate in solution.

7. Except rule 1. consider all remaining ions to be insoluble.


About chriscatanach

I enjoy long walks on the beach and watching the sun set. I am in a long term relationship with math and science. The movies are what I consider a man-made heaven. Most of all I think my self out to be the fictional reincarnation of Jay Gatsby.
