My Six chemical reactions

Done By: JaTerrica Garrett


A combustion reaction is when oxygen combines with another compound to form water and carbon dioxide.


A synthesis reaction is when two or more simple compounds combine to form a more complicated one.


A decomposition reaction is the opposite of a synthesis reaction - a complex molecule breaks down to make simpler ones.

Single Displacement

This is when one element trades places with another element in a compound.

Double Displacement

This is when the anions and cations of two different molecules switch places, forming two entirely different compounds.

Oxidation - Reduction reaction

A chemical reaction in which an atom or ion loses electrons to another atom or ion.
