In chemistry, a salt is a neutral compound composed of cations bound to anions.

In general, these salts are ionic compounds which form crystals. They are often soluble in water, where the two ions separate. Salts typically have a high melting point, low hardness, and low compressibility. If molten or dissolved in water, they conduct electricity.
