## Subject - Organic Chemistry

In organic chemistry, hydrates are defined as geminal diols generated by addition of water to the carbonyl group of or .

## Subject - Inorganic Chemistry

In inorganic chemistry, hydrates are defined as solid or liquid molecular compounds in which water is one of the components and in which the two $OH$ bonds in each molecule stay intact. Crystalline hydrates contain the crystallization water in stoichiometric amounts, for example in gypsum (calcium sulfate dihydrate, CaSO4·2H2O).
