sol·va·tion

 (sŏl-vā′shən, sôl-)
n.
Any of a class of chemical reactions in which solute and solvent molecules combine with relatively weak covalent bonds; the process of forming a solution or dispersion.

solvation

(sɒlˈveɪʃən)
n
(Chemistry) the process in which there is some chemical association between the molecules of a solute and those of the solvent. An example is an aqueous solution of copper sulphate which contains complex ions of the type [Cu(H2O)4]2+

solvation

The process of interaction between ions of a solute and the molecules of the solvent. This process is known as hydration when the solvent is water.
ThesaurusAntonymsRelated WordsSynonymsLegend:
Noun1.solvation - a chemical process in which solvent molecules and molecules or ions of the solute combine to form a compound
association - (chemistry) any process of combination (especially in solution) that depends on relatively weak chemical bonding
