What is the difference between the terms ‘hydrolysis’ and ‘hydration’?

Asked by Abhisek | 1 year ago |  171

##### Solution :-

Hydration:

The addition of 1 or more molecules to a molecule or ion which results in formation of hydrated compounds is known as hydration.

$$E.g. CuSO_{4}+5H_{2}O\rightarrow CuSO_{4}.5H_{2}$$

Hydrolysis:

Chemical reaction in which hydroxide ions and hydrogen of water molecules react with a compound to form products is called hydrolysis.

E.g.  $$NaH+H_{2}O\rightarrow NaOH+H_{2}$$
