Electrolytes are substances that release ions in water.

Many polymers are non -electrolytes. Virtually all plastics are non-electrolytes.

they are nonelectrolytes and are a separate class of molecules from monosaccharides.

electrolytes react with water to form ions in solution, and nonelectrolytes have molecules.Electrolytes are ionic compounds and some covalent compounds like strong acids. Non electrolytes do not ionize in water. Only covalent compounds like CH4 and C6H6 can be nonelectrolytes-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------♥ Compounds whose solutions in water or whose molten states are capable of conducting electricity are called electrolytes. They are either acids, bases, or salts. Solutions of these compounds contain ions. Electrolytes which in solution are completely or almost completely in the form of ions are called strong electrolytes. They are very good conductors. Those whose solutions contain mostly covalent molecules are poor conductors of electricity and are called weak electrolytes. Non electrolytes are compounds whose solutions DO NOT conduct electricity. ^^;

Their absorption and excretion does not depend on their extent of ionization in an aqueous environment or pH and pKa.

A strong electrolyte dissociates completely in solution in a polar solvent into charged particles; a weak electrolyte dissociates in solution in a polar solvent only to a sufficient extent to satisfy an equilibrium between dissociated and undissociated forms; and a nonelectrolyte does not dissociate into charged particles in solution at all.

Electrolytes: acids, bases, and salts (ionic compounds) Nonelectrolytes: usually covalent compounds with the exception of acids. Ionic compounds : One of the ions has a positive charge (called a "cation") and the other has a negative charge ("anion") *Electrolytes can be strong or weak

Electrolytes can be dissociated in water forming ions.

A common meaning of distinguish is to notice or recognize a difference between people or things. If you are color blind, you may be unable to distinguish between red and green.
