What is the difference between sodium chloride and sucrose?
Sodium chloride (NaCl) is an inorganic compound, an ionic
Sucrose (C12H22O11) is an organic compound, a saccharide.
There are several properties that distinguish sucrose from sodium chloride. One is that sucrose melts at around 186ºC whereas sodium chloride melts at around 800ºC. Another property would be that sucrose is a non electrolyte (will not conduct a current when in solution) whereas sodium chloride is an electrolyte and it will conduct a current when in solution.
physical or chemical? physical property: sucrose is sweet while sodium chloride is salty, sucrose is often prepared as fine, crystalline powder while sodium chloride is often prepared with larger crystals. chemical property: sucrose is made up of molecules while sodium chloride is made up of ions. sucrose when dissolved in water cannot conduct electricity because it has covalent bonds. thus there are no mobile ions or electrons to conduct electricity. sodium chloride on the other…
