Oxidation is a chemical process in which atoms in a molecular structure preferentially bond with available oxygen, which results in both the atom's removal from, and the weakening of, the molecular structure.

In local government the term oxidation is often used to describe the deterioration over time of the bitumen binder in a sealed road.
