1. Acids: Acids are sour in taste, turn blue litmus to red, dissolve in water to release H+ ions. 2. Bases: Bases are bitter in taste, turns red litmus to blue and when dissolved in water releases OH– ions. 3. Salts: Any chemical compound formed from the reaction of an acid with a base, with all or part of the hydrogen of the acid replaced by a metal or other cation. 4. Molecular compound: A compound formed when two or more atoms join together chemically through covalent bonds are called molecular compounds.
