why compounds formed by ionisations are not recognised as real chemical compounds

Dear student,

Ionization compounds are formed by combining two or more ions, when a compound is formed in this way it is recognized as a compound like in the case of NaCl when Na+ and Cl- ions combine with each other then the NaCl compound is formed. It is recognized as an ionic compound but in the presence of water this compound will dissociate into ions and it is no longer a compound. So they are not termed as real chemical compounds. Another reason for this is ionic compounds do not exhibit space isomerism because of the non-directional nature of the ionic bonds.
