Also found in: Dictionary.

dehydro-

(de-hī'drō),
Prefix used in the names of those chemical compounds that differ from other and more familiar compounds in the absence of two hydrogen atoms; for example, dehydroascorbic acid, which resembles ascorbic acid in all structural features except for its lack of two hydrogen atoms that are present in the ascorbic acid molecule. In systematic nomenclature, didehydro- is preferred as being more exact.
