    METABOLISM

    HI
    what word I can use which is similar to metabolism? When I translate from croatian, it is change of the substance, or metabolism, but I think it is some other word for this.

    Why not tell us what you are trying to describe? There are many words that describe changes to substances - oxidisation, dehydrogenation, atrophy, acidification, breakdown, enzymatic degradation, freezing, melting, saponification....

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections above. I agree with Raymott - there are several options, all of which depend on context and what exactly you are trying to say.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
