Unit #8 CHEMICAL REACTIONS

8.4 - Types of Reactions

Most chemical reactions can be placed into one or more of the five categories:

Combination or Synthesis Reactions
A + B AB
Decomposition Reactions
AB A + B
Combustion Reactions of substance made up of:
  • C and H
  • C, H, and O

    {substance made up of C, H} + O2 (g) CO2 (g) + H2O (l)
    {substance made up of C, H, O} + O2 (g) CO2 (g) + H2O (l)
  • Single-Replacement Reactions
    A + BC AC + B
    Double-Replacement Reactions
    AB + CD AD + CB
    Neutralization Reactions
    HX + MOH MX + HOH
