The action or process of precipitating a substance from a solution
Chemistry precipitation of a salt from solution caused by the addition or presence of acid.
Attributive Designating phenomena occurring at or immediately before the onset of precipitation, especially (Metallurgy) those occurring in solid solution in alloys, as the separation of submicroscopic particles from which crystals later develop.
The simultaneous precipitation of more than one compound from a solution
Treated or hardened by precipitation hardening.
Hardening of an alloy by heat treatment that causes the precipitation from solid solution of crystals of a solute phase; a strengthening process utilizing this phenomenon.
