zersetzen

Meanings

1.
to corrode, to decompose, to putrefy, to decay
(The core idea is to "disassemble" a material. If the material decomposes by itself, you'll need a self reference "sich zersetzen". Sounds a bit negative/destructive overall. Also used figuratively for corroding forces in a team, for example.)
