The evolution of a shock wave and its reflection from a wall in a gas-liquid medium with dissolution and hydration are experimentally investigated. Dissolution and hydration behind the front of a moderate-amplitude shock wave are demonstrated to be caused by fragmentation of gas bubbles, resulting in a drastic increase in the area of the interphase surface and in a decrease in size of gas inclusions. The mechanisms of hydration behind the wave front are examined. Hydration behind the front of a shock wave with a stepwise profile is theoretically analyzed.
