By Noah Webster.
1. The conversion of the entire amount of an acid or a base into a salt by the addition of an exactly sufficient quantity of a base or of an acid, respectively. 2. The change in reaction of a solution from acid or alkaline to neutral by the addition of just a sufficient amount of an alkaline or of an acid substance, respectively. 3. The rendering ineffective of any action or process.
By Stedman, Thomas Lathrop
By William R. Warner
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
The act or process of rendering neutral (i. e. of annulling a positive quality in such a manner that neither it nor the quality opposed to it shall exist). Thus, acidity is neutralized by reducing it to a condition in which neither an acid nor an alkaline reaction is present, and the combining capacity of an atom is neutralized by uniting it with other atoms until a saturated compound is formed.
By Smith Ely Jelliffe
