Chapter 8: Chemical Equations and Reactions

 Types of Chemical Reactions
 can include synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, double replacement, & combustion.



 

 

 

 

 

 Rusting is a synthesis reaction.  Iron plus oxygen produces iron(III) oxide.

 The decomposition of sugar into carbon and water does not occur at room temperature.  It needs a catalyst or an enzyme if it is inside your body.

 Many metals (but not all) will displace hydrogen gas within an acid. 

 Precipitates are solids formed from the reaction of two aqueous solutions. 

 Combustion is very common to us, producing heat (exothermic).


 



Nylon is a synthetic (man made) compound.  When the two reactants are mixed, they form two layers.  The synthesis of nylon will take place at the interface of the two layers.  One of the first uses of nylon was in the 1940s to make women's stockings.  Then, when World War II arrived, stockings were hard to find.  The nylon was being used mainly in the production of war materials such as parachutes.

The Thermite Reaction is a reaction that most chemists know: http://amazingrust.com/Experiments/how_to/Thermite.html
A single replacement reaction will only occur if the lone metal is more reactive than the metal in the ionic compound.  See some examples here: http://jchemed.chem.wisc.edu/JCeSoft/CCA/CCA3/MAIN/TREES/PAGE2AG.HTM
