Hydrolysis

Hydrolysis occurs when a compound reacts chemically with water (i.e., new chemical species are formed by the reaction), and can be a significant transformation process for certain hazardous wastes in the deep-well environment (see Table 20.7). Hydrolysis reactions fall into two major categories: replacement and addition. The rates at which these reactions occur are also significant in a fate assessment because some take so long to occur that they will not take place during the analytical time frame (10,000 years).
