Question

They are conductors of electricity in solid, molten or aqueous state.

  1. True
  2. False

hintHint:

Ionic compounds conduct electricity when dissolved in water.

The correct answer is 'False'.


    • Ionic compounds are hard and brittle.
    • Ionic compounds are solid at room temperature.
    • Ionic compounds have high melting and boiling point.
    • Ionic compounds have high lattice energy, and enthalpies of fusion and vaporization are much higher than molecular compounds.
    • Ionic compounds conduct electricity when dissolved in water, as they are split into ions.
