Name the process that is used for crumbling of iron compounds in rocks.

Oxidation is the process that is used for the crumbling iron compounds in rocks.

Oxidation is another kind of chemical weathering that happens when oxygen combines with another substance and creates compounds called oxides. Rust, for example, is iron oxide. When rocks, particularly those with iron in them, are exposed to air and water, the iron undergoes oxidation, which can weaken the rocks and make them crumble.
