Certain molecules can be joined by the removal of water in a process called:
I know that the process of hydration is defined as, "A compound produced by combining a substance chemically with water."
The process of hydrolysis is defined as, "The chemical breakdown of a compound due to reaction with water."
Neutralization is a chemical reaction in which an acid and a base react quantitatively with each other.
Condensation is the conversion of a vapor or gas to a liquid.
The answer is most likely (1), but I'd like some feedback and explanation of these definitions!
