Condensation vs. Dehydration
« on: September 19, 2005, 09:13:48 AM »

I'm a little confused as to the difference between dehydration and condensation reactions. The question I am answering requires me to explain various terms, illustrated by an example. The last two terms are dehydration and condensation, listed separately.

Now, I was under the impresion that these two reactions were one and the same. Perhaps one is the removal of water as a molecule of H2O while the other is a removal of water which is then absorbed into another molecule?

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

The way I learned it, condensation and dehydration reactions are the same.
