Reaction Types

They are all different, and do different jobs

Synthesis- A+B=AB


Synthesis is a purposeful execution of chemical reactions to obtain a product, or several products. This happens by physical and chemical manipulations usually involving one or more reactions.

Decomposition- AB=A+B

Decomposition is separation of a substance into two or more substances that may differ from each other and from the original substance.

Single Replacement- A+BC=AC+B

single-replacement reaction is a type of oxidation-reduction chemical reaction when an element or ion moves out of one compound and into another. That is, one element is replaced by another in a compound.

Double Replacement- AB+CD=AD+CB

Double replacement is a chemical process involving the exchange of bonds between two reacting chemical species.

Combustion- CHO+ O2=CO2+H2O

Combustion is the sequence of exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat and conversion of chemical species.
