Neutralisation is the process in which you are trying to balance the pH to 7, neutral.

Either by adding an acid to an alkali or adding alkali to acid.

Your main target is getting the solution to get to pH 7

Neutralisation is basically adding an alkali/ acid to a solution to get it to be neutral - PH 7   :)

When you add acid to base, or vice versa so that the concentration of H+ and OH- is equal,

If you're doing GCSE though it's fine to say pH 7 C:

neutralisation is when an acid is added to a base untill the solution reaches pH 7 (neutral)

this then makes a salt

In scientific terms it is

H (positive ) + OH ( negative ) --> H 2 0 (neutral)

Neutralisation is the process in which an acid and a base react together forming water and salt.
