Englisch - Englisch
The process by which a compound body breaks up into simpler constituents; said particularly of the action of heat on gaseous or volatile substances

the dissociation of ammonium chloride into hydrochloric acid and ammonia.

The act of dissociating or disuniting; a state of separation; disunion
A defence mechanism where certain thoughts or mental processes are compartmentalised in order to avoid emotional stress to the conscious mind

Project MONARCH could be best described as a form of structured dissociation and occultic integration, carried out in order to compartmentalize the mind into multiple personalities within a systematic framework. —Ron Patton.

{n} separation, disunion
A psychological separation of "splitting off"; an intrapsychic defensive process, which operates automatically and unconsciously Through its operation, emotional significance and affect are separated and detached from an idea, situation, or object
-This phenomenon lies on a continuum ranging from normal day dreaming and "highway hypnosis" on one end to the extremely pathological formation of alternate-identities (DID) at the other end
a defense mechanism in which a person's identity, memories, ideas, feelings, or perceptions are separated from conscious awareness and cannot be recalled or experienced voluntarily distractibility inability to attend to the appropriate or relevant stimuli in a given situation
The process by which salts dissolve in water to give solutions that contain the corresponding ions
the decomposition of a compound into two or more simpler species
The process by which a compound body breaks up into simpler constituents; said particularly of the action of heat on gaseous or volatile substances; as, the dissociation of the sulphur molecules; the dissociation of ammonium chloride into hydrochloric acid and ammonia
the physical separation of a compound into ions
The separation of a complex molecule into constituents by collision with a second body, or by absorption of a photon
vippayutta-paccaya, is one of the 24 conditions (paccaya, q v )
The process that may occur when a chemical compound is dissolved in a solvent (e g , water) The molecules of the compound will break up ("dissociate") into two or more ions resulting in an ionically conducting electrolyte solution E g , the common table salt (sodium chloride) will dissociate into a single charged sodium cation and a single charged chloride anion
In aqueous solution, the process in which a solid ionic compound separates into its ions
the act of removing from association (chemistry) the temporary or reversible process in which a molecule or ion is broken down into smaller molecules or ions a state in which some integrated part of a person's life becomes separated from the rest of the personality and functions independently
the splitting apart of a molecule into its constituent atoms, e g , the splitting of water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen when water vapor is struck by ultraviolet light
Under certain conditions some thoughts and actions become split off, or dissociated, from the rest of consciousness and function outside of awareness
{i} cutting off, breaking off an association or connection
Breaking down of a compound into its components
The chemical breakdown of a compound into simpler compounds or elements One of the most common examples is the dissociation of ammonia (NH3) into nitrogen and hydrogen
the act of removing from association
Not "in" an experience, but seeing or hearing it from outside as from a spectator's point of view, in contrast to association
Chemical process where a compound or molecule breaks up into simpler constituents
a state in which some integrated part of a person's life becomes separated from the rest of the personality and functions independently
Dissociation is a psychological process involving alterations in identity or sense of self These alterations in sense of self can include: a relatively mild and transient sense that the world or the self is "unreal" (derealization and depersonalization); more permanent states such as amnesia (loss of memory) or fugue states (where a person forgets who they are and assumes a new identity); and the most severe form known as Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder) wherein identity is fragmented into more than one unique personality The act of dissociation itself is probably most often triggered by trauma or other severe stress
Breaking of a chemical compound into simpler constituents as a result of added energy, as in the case of gaseous molecules dissociated by heating; also, the effect of a solvent on a dissolved polar compound (electrolyte), as in the case of an inorganic salt, such as sodium chloride, dissolved in water. All electrolytes dissociate into ions to a greater or lesser extent in polar solvents (in which the molecules are electric dipoles). The degree of dissociation can be used to determine the equilibrium constant. Dissociation is used to explain electrical conductivity and many other properties of electrolytic solutions
(chemistry) the temporary or reversible process in which a molecule or ion is broken down into smaller molecules or ions
The process of stepping outside the point of view of experiencing the world from one's physical position, ie seeing oneself from the outside
Formerly used in the field of psychiatry as a label to describe individuals who "withdrew" from an association with their body and/or environment during periods of excessive stress While originally considered an aberrant mental state, new research is re-evaluating the its potential benefits in certain psychological situations Dissociation is proposed as a psychological cause of NDEs by some critics
The act of removing from association; the state of being separate and unconnected Activity performed outside of normal conscious awareness, or mental processes that suggest the existence of separate centers of consciousness
(noun) The process by which a compound body (ie, molecule) breaks up into simpler constituents The act of breaking bonds apart, and resulting in the ionization of the compound body Example: the dissociation of ammonium chloride (NH4Cl) into hydrochloric acid (HCl) and ammonia (NH3) In the case of acids, dissociation results in the formation of hydrogen ions Strong acids dissociate completely Weak acids are not completely ionized, and a solution of a weak acid has a relatively low concentration of hydrogen ions
dissociation energy
The energy needed to break every chemical bond in a molecule and completely separate all its atoms
dissociation reaction
Any reaction in which a compound is dissociated into its elements, or in which a molecule is dissociated into atoms
dissociation constant
the inverse of the formation constant, which is the equilibrium constant for the reaction in which ligands replace water molecules in binding to a complex ion So if the dissociation constant is high, the formation constant is low and fewer ligands are binding with metal ions
dissociation constant
For systems in which °ligands of a particular kind bind to a °receptor in a solvent there will be a characteristic frequency with which existing ligand-receptor complexes dissociate as a result of thermal excitation, and a characteristic frequency with which empty receptors bind ligands as a result of Brownian encounters, forming new complexes The frequency of binding is proportional to the concentration of the ligand in solution The dissociation constant is the magnitude of the ligand concentration at which the probability that the receptor will be found occupied is 1/2
dissociation constant
the equilibrium constant for the decomposition of a complex ion into its components in solution
dissociation constant
A value which quantitatively expresses the extent to which a substance dissociates in solution The smaller the value of K, the less dissociation of the species in solution This value varies with temperature, ionic strength, and the nature of the solvent
dissociation constant
A value that quantitatively expresses the extent to which a substance dissociates in solution The smaller the value of K, the less dissociation of the species in solution This value varies with temperature, ionic strength, and the nature of the solvent
dissociation constant
Equilibrium constant that applies to the dissociation of a comples ion into a simple ion and coordinating species (ligands)
dissociation constant
the equilibrium constant for a reversible dissociation
bond dissociation energy
The change in enthalpy that occurs when a specific chemical bond is broken; a measure of the strength of the bond
dissociative
causing dissociation
dissociative
removing or separating from some association
dissociative
Tending to dissociate; causing dissociation
disassociation
{i} separation, severance, parting, freeing oneself from
disassociation
the state of being unconnected in memory or imagination; "I could not think of him in disassociation from his wife
disassociation
alternative spelling of dissociation
dissociative
Tending or leading to dissociation
dissociative
tending to produce dissociation
dissociative
a dissociative drug
dissociative
{s} pertaining to dissociation; pertaining to disunion, pertaining to separation; pertaining to the splitting of consciousness into disunited parts (Psychiatry)
heat of dissociation
the heat required for a fluid substance to break up into simpler constituents
theory of dissociation
(chemistry) theory that describes aqueous solutions in terms of acids (which dissociate to give hydrogen ions) and bases (which dissociate to give hydroxyl ions); the product of an acid and a base is a salt and water
