e•lec•tro•lyte

(ɪˈlɛk trəˌlaɪt)

n.
1. any substance that dissociates into ions when melted or dissolved in a suitable medium and thus forms a conductor of electricity.
2. a conducting medium in which the flow of current is accompanied by the movement of ions.
[1825–35; electro- + Greek lyt(ós), v. adj. of lyein to loosen; compare -lytic]

e·lec·tro·lyte

(ĭ-lĕk′trə-līt′)
1. A substance that when dissolved or melted becomes electrically conductive by breaking apart into ions. The movement of ions carries the current.
2. Any of these ions found in body fluids. Electrolytes are needed by cells to regulate the flow of water molecules across cell membranes.

electrolyte

1. A substance which forms ions when molten or dissolved in a solvent and which carries an electric current during electrolysis.
2. A dissolved substance conducting, and decomposed by, an electric current.
