Solubility equilibria are heterogeneous equilibria that describe the dissolution and precipitation of slightly soluble ionic compounds. Examples are commonly encountered in many chemical and biological processes. This chapter deals with the application of chemical equilibrium to heterogeneous systems involving saturated solutions of slightly soluble ionic compounds. When a slightly soluble salt is dissolved in water, it eventually reaches a point of saturation where equilibrium is established between the undissolved salt and its solution.

Keywords:   coordination number, ion product (Q), ligand, precipitation and Ksp
