# Electrolytes are ionic compounds that conduct electricity [closed]

Electrolytes are ionic compounds that conduct electricity, or the flow of charged particles, when dissolved in water. This occurs via the separated ions acting as those charged particles, or charge carriers, when a voltage is applied. Which compound would not create an electrolyte solution when dissolved in water?

A) ammonium acetate, $$\ce{NH4C2H3O2}$$

B) sucrose, $$\ce{C12H22O11}$$

c) sodium hydroxide, $$\ce{NaOH}$$

D) potassium nitrate, $$\ce{KNO3}$$

Sucrose is an covalent compound and it does not ionize. $$\ce{KNO3}$$, $$\ce{NaOH}$$ are good ionic compounds hence the can form electolytic solutions. Ammonium acetate also can ionize. Hence the answer is 2
