A chemical reaction that is the result of a substance being expose to oxygen. When the oxygen is exposed to certain elements it causes a change to occur, such as when some foods like apples and bananas have their peels removed and are exposed to oxygen, they turn brown. Wine, when exposed to air after opening, begins to decompose and lose its flavor, tasting more like a beverage with vinegar overtones the longer it is kept stored.
