Dehydration Synthesis

Dehydration synthesis is the process of joining two molecules, or compounds, together following the removal of water. It is classified as a type of chemical reaction. The chemical reaction is the process where chemical substances called reactants transform into new substances called products.


But a dehydration synthesis also has a different alias it can go by; this is a condensation reaction. During a condensation reaction, two molecules are condensed and water is lost to form a large molecule. This is the same exact process that occurs during a dehydration synthesis.
