Why does iodine do not conduct electricity?

Melting point: Iodine is liquid so it doesn't have a melting point. Conductor of Eletricity: Iodine does not conduct electricity since each molecule of iodine comprises two iodine atoms joined by a covalent bond that cannot be excited sufficiently to transfer electrical energy.

Then, is iodine a solid liquid or gas at room temperature?

Room temperature is usually taken as being 25°C. At this temperature, fluorine and chlorine are gases, bromine is a liquid, and iodine and astatine are solids. There is therefore a trend in state from gas to liquid to solid down the group.

Is Iodine is solid?

This element is a solid. The halogens exist, at room temperature, in all three states of matter - Gases such as Fluorine & Chlorine, Solids such as Iodine and Astatine and Liquid as in Bromine.

Why sodium chloride is a solid at room temperature?

Explain why chlorine (Cl2) is a gas at room temperature, but sodium chloride (NaCl) is a solid at room temperature. The melting/boiling point of a substance determines what state of matter it takes at a certain temperature. In Cl2 there are covalent bonds between the atoms forming simple molecules.
