1. Classifying Reactions a. Synthesis: Execution of chemical reactions in order to get a product, or several products. a.i. Example: 2Na + Cl 2 → 2 NaCl b. Decomposition: The separation of a chemical compound into elements or smaller compounds. b.i. Example: 2H 2 O 2 → 2H 2 O + O 2 c. Single Displacement: When an element or ion moves out of one compound and into another. c.i. Example: Cu + 2AgNO 3 → 2Ag + Cu(NO 3 ) 2 d. Double Displacement: Exchange of bonds between the two reacting chemical species, which results in the creation of products with similar or identical bonding affiliations. d.i. Example: AgNO 3 + HCl AgCl + HNO 3 e. Combustion: Exothermic chemical reactions between a fuel and an oxidant accompanied by the production of heat or both heat and light in the form of either a glow or flames. e.i. Example: CH 4 + 2O 2 → CO 2 + 2H 2 O 2. Predicting Products a. In synthesis reactions, the positive ion and negative ions form a bond. a.i.
