Expert Answer:

Dissociation refers to the breaking of a chemical bond without reference to whether the products are ions or neutral fragments.
Ionization refers to breaking of chemical bonds into charged species. The terms are sometimes both used when referring to the ionization reaction HA -----> H(+) + A(-).
