Ionic Compounds are made up of giant structures. In these structures strong electrostatic forces hold the ions together. So this means
- Solid at room temperature
You need loads of energy to overcome the strong ionic bonds because they have high melting/boiling points.
- Ions free to move
This then allows the compound to carry an electrical current.
