reactants
A reagent /riˈeɪdʒənt/ is a substance or compound added to a system to cause a chemical reaction, or added to see if a reaction occurs

neutralization reaction
In chemistry, neutralization or neutralisation , is a chemical reaction in which an acid and a base react quantitatively with each other
Got it
chemical equilibrium
In a chemical reaction, chemical equilibrium is the state in which both reactants and products are present in concentrations which have no further tendency to change with time

Hydrolysis usually means the cleavage of chemical bonds by the addition of water
Ionic compounds
In chemistry, an ionic compound is a chemical compound comprising ions held together by electrostatic forces termed ionic bonding
Catabolism
Catabolism is the set of metabolic pathways that breaks down molecules into smaller units that are either oxidized to release energy, or used in other anabolic reactions
acid
An acid is a molecule or ion capable of donating a hydron , or, alternatively, capable of forming a covalent bond with an electron pair
buffer
A buffer solution is an aqueous solution consisting of a mixture of a weak acid and its conjugate base, or vice versa
strong acid
The strength of an acid refers to its ability or tendency to lose a proton
chemical bond
A chemical bond is a lasting attraction between atoms that enables the formation of chemical compounds
base
A military base is a facility directly owned and operated by or for the military or one of its branches that shelters military equipment and personnel, and facilitates training and operations
covalent bonding
A covalent bond, also called a molecular bond, is a chemical bond that involves the sharing of electron pairs between atoms
Dehydration reactions
In chemistry and the biological sciences, a dehydration reaction is usually defined as a chemical reaction that involves the loss of a water molecule from the reacting molecule
