Adding salt to water at ambient pressure affects its thermodynamic properties. At low salt concentration, anomalies such as the density maximum are shifted to lower temperature, while at large enough salt concentration they cannot be observed any more... Here we investigate the effect of salt on an anomaly recently observed in pure water at negative pressure: the existence of a sound velocity minimum along isochores. We compare experiments and simulations for an aqueous solution of sodium chloride with molality around $1.2\,\mathrm{mol\,kg^{-1}}$, reaching pressures beyond $-100\,\mathrm{MPa}$. We also discuss the origin of the minima in the sound velocity and emphasize the importance of the relative position of the temperatures of sound velocity and density anomalies. read more
