Dehydration synthesis, or a dehydration reaction, is a chemical reaction associated with the loss of a water molecule between two compounds. Dehydration synthesis is a type of condensation reaction, which is what occurs ... More »

Dehydration synthesis is the formation of a new compound by the removal of oxygen and hydrogen from reactants, while hydrolysis is the breakdown of a compound through a chemical reaction with water. These opposite proces... More »

The difference between dehydration synthesis and hydrolysis is that in one, bonds are being formed, while in the other bonds are being destroyed. Dehydration synthesis bonds molecules together by removing water. In hydro... More »

Dehydration of cyclohexanol produces water and cyclohexene as products. The basic dehydration reaction results in the loss of a water atom from the cyclohexanol and the formation of a double bond within the ring. More »
