carbonation

[‚kär·bə′nā·shən]
(chemistry)
Conversion to a carbonate.
(chemical engineering)
The process by which a fluid, especially a beverage, is impregnated with carbon dioxide.
(geochemistry)
A process of chemical weathering whereby minerals that contain soda, lime, potash, or basic oxides are changed to carbonates by the carbonic acid in air or water.

carbonation

The reaction between carbon dioxide and calcium compounds, esp. in cement paste, mortar, or concrete, to produce calcium carbonate.

Accelerated Carbonation. All the water repellent-treated and -untreated specimens were then submitted to accelerated carbonation for 7, 28, and 72 days.
The Fe 2p binding energy of steel corroded in the simulated chloride salt solution was 709.96 ev, the Fe 2p binding energy of the steel corroded in the simulated carbonation solution was 710.76 ev, and the binding energy of Fe 2p in the simulated carbonation and chloride salt solution was 711.30 ev.
The fib Bulletin 34 [18] has included a full-probabilistic approach to predict carbonation depth of uncracked concrete, for estimating RC structures service life, implementing a performance-based design approach.
After two weeks, the wort or fermented liquid mix is either bottled or placed in a craft barrel where carbonation will take place by a dosage of sugar.
This neutralization is normally known as carbonation. Once the carbonated zone reaches the reinforcement the alkaline protection is removed and corrosion can proceed.
The presence of carbonate neutralizes concrete, and as the carbonation reaches the reinforcing steel bars, these will corrode in the present of water and oxygen.
(1) The quality of fly ash is unstable because the quality of fly ash changes greatly with that of coals [11, 12]; (2) there is lower early age compressive strength of concrete due to lower activity of fly ash [13,14]; (3) pozzolanic reaction of fly ash leads to decreased pH value of concrete, which results in a poor carbonation resistance [15-17].
In order to evaluate the performance characteristics of the produced concretes, the durability properties as absorption, the chloride permeability, chemical resistance to sulfates, and the resistance to concrete carbonation were evaluated.
The carbonation of the beer also cleanses the palate from the heavy finish of the chocolate; after a sip, the palate is ready for another taste.
The V-Tex uses a cooling vortex to chill the drinks, spinning the beverage around without disturbing the carbonation of fizzy drinks.
The V-Jet series low-flow, high-pressure positive displacement rotary vane pump heads were developed for beverage carbonation, water dispensing, water boosting, espresso or coffee machine operations and I coolant recirculation systems.
New research from the Monell Chemical Senses Center of Philadelphia, funded by Anheuser-Busch Inbev, has revealed that bubbles of carbonation are not what creates the "bite" of carbonated beverages.
