Synthesis:

the production of chemical compounds by reaction from simpler materials


Equation: A + B ---> AB


Examples: Synthesis of water

Decomposition:

reaction is a type of chemical reaction where one reactant yields two or more products


Equation: AB → A + B


Examples: Water can be separated by electrolysis into hydrogen gas and oxygen gas through decomposition reaction

Single Replacement

is a chemical reaction where one reactant is exchanged for one ion of a second reactant


Equation: A + BC → B + AC


Examples: Statue of Liberty

Double Replacement

is a chemical reaction where two reactant ionic compounds exchange ions to form two new product compounds with the same ions


Equation: A+B- + C+D- → A+D- + C+B-


Examples: Table Salt

Combustion

is a type of chemical reaction where compound and an oxidant is reacted to produce heat and a new product


Equation: CxHy + O2 ---> CO2 + H2O


Examples: burring of coal
