Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The act or process of causing combination with carbonic acid; specifically, a process of defecating beet-, sorghum-, or cane-juice by the addition of milk of lime, and subsequently precipitating the lime as carbonate by leading into the solution a stream of carbonic-acid gas. Also carbonatation.
- n. In the Leblanc process for the manufacture of carbonate of soda, the treatment with carbon-dioxid gas of the crude liquor obtained by leaching the black ash, or, after evaporation of this crude liquor to dryness, the roasting of the residue, to which sawdust has been added. The object of the process is the conversion of some caustic soda and sodium sulphid present into sodium carbonate.
- n. In petrography, the union of carbonic acid and a base, or the substitution of carbonic acid for another combined acid, in either case producing carbonates.
- n. The state of having carbon dioxide gas dissolved in a liquid.
- n. The amount or level of dissolved carbon dioxide remaining in solution.
- n. Carbonization.
- n. saturation with carbon dioxide (as soda water)
- carbonate + -ion (Wiktionary)

“Zuker's team gave mice genetically modified to lack sour-sensing taste cells a taste of club soda or exposed them to CO2 gas and found they had no neural responses to carbonation, meaning that without these cells they could not detect CO2.”
“Fittingly Peter B. Kelemen and Jürg Matter of Columbia University have filed for a patent on a technique that could potentially store billions of tons of CO2 in exposed peridotite, the dominant rock of the upper part of the Earth's mantle, by accelerating a natural 'carbonation' process.”
“Glacial layers are always covered from above by carbonate rocks, showing that increased carbonation (as the earth warmed) follows periods of icing.”
