Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Hydrolytic Hy`dro*lyt"ic, a. [Hydro-, 1 + Gr. ? to loose.] (Chem.) Tending to remove or separate water; eliminating water. Hydrolytic agents, such as sulphuric acid or caustic alkali. --Encyc. Brit. Hydrolytic ferment (Physiol. Chem.), a ferment, enzyme, or chemical ferment, which acts only in the presence of water, and which causes the substance acted upon to take up a molecule of water. Thus, diastase of malt, ptyalin of saliva, and boiling dilute sulphuric acid all convert starch by hydration into dextrin and sugar. Nearly all of the digestive ferments are hydrolytic in their action.
