Are sulfites water soluble?

Solubility: The sulfites of Na+, K+, and NH4+ are soluble in water. Most other sulfites are insoluble in water. However, due to the basic nature of SO32-, all sulfites dissolve in acidic solution.

Keeping this in consideration, what is the general rule of solubility?

General Rules of Solubility. The dividing line between soluble and insoluble is 0.1-molar at 25 °C. Any substance that can form 0.1 M or more concentrated is soluble. Any substance that fails to reach 0.1 M is defined to be insoluble.

Are chlorides soluble in water?

Soluble and insoluble salts
Most sulfatesLead sulfate, barium sulfate and calcium sulfate
Most chlorides, bromides and iodidesSilver chloride, silver bromide, silver iodide, lead chloride, lead bromide, lead iodide
Sodium carbonate, potassium carbonate, ammonium carbonateMost other carbonates

Is SrSO4 water soluble?

Sulfates are generally soluble. PbSO4, SrSO4, and BaSO4 are insoluble. CaSO4, Hg2SO4, and Ag2SO4 are moderately soluble. The corresponding bisulfates are more soluble.
