Also found in: Dictionary, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

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.
