In a solvolytic reaction, the solvent molecule reacts with the solute in a manner that the solvent molecule is split into two parts, a part of which gets attached to the solute molecule. In this manner, solvolytic reactions lead to the increase in concentration of one of the solvent ions. The terms hydrolysis ammonolysis are applied to solvolytic reaction in water and ammonia, respectively. Some examples are:
SO2CI2  + 4H2O  →     SO2(OH)2  +  2H3O+  2CI-          (Hydrolysis)
                                                                 (concentration of
                          liq NH3                           H3O+ is increated)
SO2CI2 + 4NH3   →      SO2 (NH2) + 2 NH4+ + 2CI          (Ammonolysis)
                                                                  (concentration of
                                                                   NH4+ is increases)
                             liq NH3
     SiCI4 + 8NH3    →         Si(NH2)4 + 4H+ + 4CI-
         TiCI4 + 4HF    →         TiF4 + 4H+ +  4CI-
                          liq. SO2
       PCI5 +SO2       →         POCI3 + SO2+ + 2CI-
                           liq. SO2
         UCI6 + 2SO2   →         UO2CI2 + 2 SO2+ + 4CI-
