NaCl bonds ionically whereas $\displaystyle CO_2$ bonds covalently. Generally ionic materials dissolve in water, whereas covalent bonds do not. Remark: You can "dissolve" $\displaystyle CO_2$ in water in the sense that it forms carbonic acid. This is what you find in carbonated drinks like soda. Dan
