(dis″tĭ-lā′shŏn )

[distill]
Condensation of a vapor that has been obtained from a liquid heated to the volatilization point, as the condensation of steam from boiling water. Distillation is used to purify water and for other purposes. Distilled water should be stored in covered containers because it readily takes up impurities from the atmosphere.
