Types of Chemical Reactions

Types of Reactions
Synthesis: when 2 or more simple compounds combine to form a more complicated one

Decomposition: when a complex molecule breaks down to make simpler ones

Single-replacement: when 1 element trade places with another element in a compound

Double Replacement:when the anions and cations of two different molecules switch places, forming two entirely different compounds

Combustion: when oxygen combines with another compound to form water and carbon dioxide, these reactions are exothermic
