What is a Neutralization Reaction?

A neutralization reaction can be defined as a chemical reaction in which an acid and base quantitatively react together to form salt and water as products.

Energy is released during a neutralization reaction.

Neutralization Reaction Equation

acid + base(alkali) → salt + water

Neutralization Reaction Examples

  • Formation of Sodium Chloride (Common Salt):
    HCl + NaOH → NaCl + H2O
  • Titration methods using phenolphthalein.

Application of Neutralization Reaction

  • This method is used in wastewater treatment in order to reduce the damage created by the effluents.
  • Neutralization is used in the manufacturing of antacid tablets.
  • The neutralization reaction is used to control the pH of the soil.
