An acid-base reaction is a chemical reaction between an acid and a base. The products of such a reaction are a salt and water.

The reaction can be simplified to

OH
(aq)
+ H+
(aq) → H
2
O

The other ions remain constant because they are not affected by the reaction. They are called spectator ions.
