solvation

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

The identification of the mineral was assessed according to the position of basal reflection 001 in three patterns: i) natural sample, ii) after solvation in the presence of ethylene glycol for 24h and iii) after heating at 500 [degrees]C for 2 h.
According to Kwon, M-Ink contains three ingredients: magnetic nanoparticles 100 to 200 nanometres across, a solvation liquid, and a resin.
A number of factors which make the anions more difficult for binding to synthetic receptors than the cations, are size, shape and free energy of solvation. Anions are structurally diverse and are larger than their isoelectronic cations.
Nonetheless, it is unlikely that the presence of ions in the oceans will dramatically alter the conclusions reached herein, even though the presence of ions can produce small changes in the first solvation shell [17, 18].
Further, apparent molar compressibility, apparent molar volume and solvation number have been evaluated.
Kebarle's work from 1963 to this day created the field of gas phase acidity/basicity and allowed a step-by-step thermodynamic analysis of the process of ion solvation. Kebarle's work, which is discussed in any treatise on solution chemistry or physical organic chemistry, is Nobel calibre.
Alternatively, the extent of asphaltene solvation, as measured by [DELTA] H/C, in SCS may not be comparable to that found in the other crudes.
Such unexpected at first glance dependence of sonication effects can be related to the weak solvation of esters in this region.
Mg-saturated sample with glycerol solvation resulted in a no d-spacing expansion at 1.41 nm, which indicated the absence of smectite.
