Salt hydrolysis is the reaction of ions of salt with water. It can occur with an anion, a cation or both from a salt. Example of salt hydrolysis: $$NaCl(s) \space ^ \underrightarrow {H_2O} Na^+(aq) + Cl^-(aq)$$ There are three types of salts: Those that produce neutral solutions. Those that produce basic solutions. And those that produce acidic solutions.
