the removal of all ionized minerals and salts (both organic and inorganic) from a solution by a two stage ion exchange procedure. First, positively charged for a chemically equivalent amount of hydrogen ions. Second, negatively charged ions are removed by an ion exchange resin for a chemically equivalent amount of hydroxide ions. The hydrogen and hydroxide ions are introduced in this process unite to form water molecules. The term is often used interchangeably with demineralization.
