A decomposition, experienced by animal substances, when deprived of life, and placed under special circumstances. The presence of water is indispensable, the temperature most favourable to it, is from 60 to 90 of Fahrenheit. The most common products of putrefaction are, water, carbonic acid, acetic acid, ammonia, carburetted hydrogen, and a semi-putrid substance, which is volatilized, and has an infected odour. It has been supposed that something like putrefaction may occur in the living body, as in case of putrid fever. To this condition, Piorry has given the name Typhohaemia, conceiving it to be owing to alteration of the blood by putrid animal matters. Putrefaction signifies the state of becoming putrid: whilst Putridity, Putredo, Putriditas, P'tridness, (F.) Pourriture, is the state of rottenness.
