    Carboxylation means addition of CO2 group to a molecule. This type of reaction is used mainly in organic chemistry to synthesize the carboxylic acids from alkyl/aryl halides. Generally carboxylation of water means carbon dioxide dissolved in water where carbon dioxide reacts with water to form carbonic acid (H2CO3 or HOCOOH) similar to organic carboxylic acid when comparing functional groups.
