The release of H+ ions in the water will make a compound acidic or non-acidic. Acids are the substance which upon dissociating with water results in the production of hydrogen ions. Some compounds show acidic character as they dissociate in the aqueous solution which results in the production of hydrogen ions (acids like HCl, HNO3).
Compounds similar to glucose or alcohol do contain hydrogen elements but they do not show signs of acidic nature. The fact that the hydrogen in them will not separate as like the hydrogen in the acids. They will not separate to become hydrogen ions, on dissolving in the water.Answered by Vishal kumar | 1 year ago
