# Is carbon tetrachloride an electrolyte?

Is $\ce{CCl_4}$ an electrolyte all by itself, or does something need to be added to it so that it becomes an electrolyte?

Also, is it weak or strong?

No, $\ce{CCl4}$ is not an electrolye. An electrolye is a material that causes ions (charged entities) to form in the solvent. Carbon tetrachloride neither dissociates into ions nor induces ion formation in the solvent.
The reason is that the $\ce{C-Cl}$ bond is rather strong and won't break under normal solution conditions. Nor does the molecule have any net dipole moment.
$\ce{CCl4}$ is a non polar covalent compound. It consists of only molecules. Thus, it cannot conduct electricity and is a non-electrolyte.
