Chemical Weathering Processes of Change

2010-10-4  Chemical weathering can also result from exposure to water. Hydrolysis occurs when silicate minerals react with water so that the mineral recombines with the water molecule to form a new mineral.For example, consider the mineral potassium feldspar. Potassium feldspar is a fairly common mineral and can be found in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.
