Why can’t pure water conduct electricity?

Only electrons and ions can flow electricity.

  1. Pure water doesn’t allow electricity to pass through it.
  2. Pure water does not contain any electrolytic substances, so there are no ions in pure water. Pure water cannot carry electricity.
  3. When electricity passes through water, water cannot separate into OH+ and H+. These ions are created by impurities that are both acidic and basic in nature.
  4. (The ions do not dissociate in O2- and H+. They are OH- and H+ dissociating.
