Vaporization means that the particles eg water molecules must have enough energy to break the liquid particle to particle bonds and form a gas particle. This happens at any temperature but happens for all molecules at the boiling point of the liquid. Some substances do not spontaneously go through a liquid phase but actually form a gas from the solid phase. Solid directly to gas is called sublimation but it is, in effect, a type of vaporization.
