What is the difference between hydrolysis and hydration?
Asked by Biju Jacob | 2nd Apr, 2013, 09:57: PM
Hydrolysis is the break down process of molecules while it reacts with H2O. But in hydration there is no breakdown of the substances, here the molecules of water are added into the substance.
Hydration differs from hydrolysis in that hydrolysis cleaves the non-water component in two. Hydration leaves the non-water component intact.
