    - All ionic compounds dissolve in water. One property of any ionic compound is that it is soluble in polar solvents because ionic compounds are polar. Water is a polar solvent that ionizes when an ionic compound is added to it, or causes ionic compounds to break down into ions. This is the reason why ionic compounds are soluble in water. For covalent compounds, mostly, if not all, are ...
