How does pH affect the formation of salt crystals in a solution?
Answer 1:

I'm sure it depends on the salt. For something like sodium chloride I don't imagine that it would matter much. For something like sodium acetate a low pH would prevent precipitation, and for an ammonium salt a high pH would prevent precipitation.
