Question and answer
Q: Do covalent substances ionize while dissolving?
A: Ionic compounds tend to get hydrolyzed in water due to factors like hydration energy and lattice energy while covalent ones being non polar in nature remain as such undissolved or form a separate layer over water. [ Note: the second statement above is not strictly true. Many covalent compounds are polar covalent compounds, and as such, dissolve readily in water. Sugar is one obvious example.
The above answer is correct if the covalent compound is really non-polar, such as grease, oil, wax, or other hydrocarbons. The real answer is the ionic compounds undergo Dissociation when dissolved, which is the separation of ions. While covalent compounds undergo Ionization when dissolved. Of course this is all in the objective of obtaining ions out of solutions. Read more: ]
