sol·vol·y·sis

(sol-vol'i-sis),
1. The reaction of a dissolved salt with the solvent to form an acid and a base; the (partial) reverse of neutralization. If the solvent is water, an amphiprotic solvent, solvolysis is called hydrolysis.
2. The reaction of the solvent with a solute, resulting in the scission of a bond and incorporation of the atoms of the solvent into the product.

solvolysis

(sŏl-vŏl′ĭ-sĭs)
A general term for reactions involving decomposition by hydrolysis, ammonolysis, and sulfolysis.

Our work was directed to a modified solvolysis procedure which enables us to produce new polyols from polyurethane soft foams which, according to the aim mentioned above, can be processed to high-grade polyurethanes, especially coatings, adhesives and sealants as well as composites, by formulation with polyisocyanates.
This aim shall be approached by a modified solvolysis consisting in the

As with many sonochemical studies the effect of irradiation in this solvolysis decreases as the reaction temperature is increased.
A Homogeneous reaction: the rate of solvolysis of 2-chloro-2-methylpropane in aqueous ethanol This is based upon a standard undergraduate experiment in which the first order hydrolysis of a haloalkane is followed by monitoring the change in conductivity of the solution as HC1 is liberated (see Scheme 2).
Solvolysis Hydrolysis is defined as the reaction with water.
