Types of Chemical Reactions

Chance Johnson

There are 5 types of Chemical Reactions

Synthesis, Decomposition, Single Replacement, Double Replacement, and Combustion

Synthesis

Definition-the combination of ideas to form a theory or system.

Equation-A+B > AB

Example- 2Li+Cl > 2LiCl

Decomposition

Definition-the state or process of rotting; decay.

Equation-AB > A+B

Example- 2HO > 2H+O

Single-Replacement

Definition-a type of oxidation-reduction chemical reaction when an element or ion moves out of one compound and into another

Equation- A+BC > B+AC

Example-H+OLi > O+HLi

Double-Replacement

Definition-type of reaction that occurs when the cations and anions switch between two reactants to form new products

Equation-AB+CD > CB+AD

Example-NaCl+AgO > AgCl+NaO

Combustion

Definition-a reaction in which one of the reactants is oxygen. ▪ The other reactant is usually a hydrocarbon

Equation-CO2+H2O

Example-3CH+2O > CO+H2O
