A chemical reaction is a chemical change which forms new substances. In a chemical reaction atoms/molecules comprising the reactants combine together to form products Chemical reactions are usually characterized by the formation of one or more products with properties different from the reactants. All chemical reactions involve one form of chemical transformation or another. Common examples around us include beer making where yeast turns the sugar into alcohol and rusting of iron because of exposure to air. Breakage of Bonds during Chemical Reaction

Energy plays important role in chemical reactions as bonds between atoms in the reactants must be broken. Atoms and molecules are reassembled into products by forming new bonds. Energy is absorbed to break bonds and energy is evolved as bonds are made. Chemical reactions occur at a characteristic reaction rate at a given temperature and chemical concentration. Reaction rates increase with increasing temperature because there is more thermal energy available to reach the activation energy necessary for breaking bonds between atoms The Four Major Types of Chemical Reactions

(1) Direct combination or Synthesis Reactions (2) Decomposition reactions (3) Substitution or Single Replacement Reactions (4) Metathesis or Double Displacement Reactions The Four Major Types of Chemical Name Reactions General Reaction Pattern Direct combination or synthesis + B ----> AB A Decomposition AB ----> A + B Substitution or Single Replacement BC ----> B + AC

A + Direct Combination or Synthesis Reactions In combination or synthesis reaction, two or more reactants unite to form a single product. It involves the combination of two or more chemical species combine to form a more complex product. A well-known example of a synthesis reaction is the formation of water via the fusion of hydrogen gas and oxygen gas Another example of a synthesis reaction is the formation of sodium chloride (table salt).

Other Examples of Synthesis Reactions S + O2 ---------> SO2 sulphur oxygen sulphur dioxide 2S + 3 O2 ---------> 2 SO3 sulphur oxygen sulphur trioxide

Rusting of Iron During a Synthesis Reaction Decomposition or Analysis Reaction A single reactant is decomposed or broken down into two or more products. In a decomposition reaction a compound is broken into smaller chemical species CaCO3 ----------> calcium carbonate CaO + CO2

calcium oxide carbon dioxide The electrolysis of water into oxygen and hydrogen gas is an example of a decomposition reaction: 2 H2O -----------> 2 H2 + O2 Substitution or Single AReplacement single free element Reactions replaces or is substituted for one of the elements in a compound. The free element is more reactive than the one its replaces. Zn + 2 HCl ----------> H2 + ZnCl2 zinc hydrochloric acid hydrogen

zinc chloride Cu + 2 AgNO3 -----------> 2 Ag + Cu(NO3)2 copper H2 silver copper (II) nitrate + 2 AgNO3 -----------> 2 Ag + 2 HNO3 hydrogen 2 silver nitrate silver nitrate silver Na + 2 H2O -----------> 2 NaOH sodium

water nitric acid + sodium hydroxide H2 hydrogen Metathesis or Double Displacement Reactions This reaction type can be viewed as an "exchange of partners." For ionic compounds, the positive ion in the first compound combines with the negative ion in the second compound, And

the positive ion in the second compound combines with the negative ion in the first Metathesis or Double Displacement Reactions HCl + NaOH -----------> NaCl hydrochloric acid BaCl2 sodium chloride H2O water + 2 AgNO3 ----------> 2 AgCl + Ba(NO3)2

barium chloride CaCO sodium hydroxide + 3 calcium carbonate silver nitrate silver chloride barium nitrate (precipitate )

+ 2 HCl -----------> CaCl2 + H2CO3 hydrochloric acid calcium chloride carbonic acid Acid-Base (Neutralization) Reactions In simple terms, an acid is a substance which can lose a H + ion (i.e. a proton) and a base is a substance which can accept a proton. When equal amounts of an acid and base react, they neutralize each other to form neutral species. For example, when hydrochloric acid and

sodium hydroxide react, they form water and sodium chloride (table salt). Combustion Reaction Combustion also known as burning combination of a substance with oxygen. The products are carbon dioxide, possible other waste products is the water, and

Combustion is similar to a decomposition reaction, except that oxygen and heat are required for it to occur. If there is not enough oxygen, the reaction may not occur. Sometimes, with limited oxygen, the reaction will occur, but it produces carbon monoxide (CO) or even soot to give incomplete combustion. Difference Between a Chemical Reaction and a Physical Change There are several differences between a physical and chemical change in matter or substances. In a physical change a substance doesn't change what the substance is. While

in a chemical reaction, a new substance is formed and energy is either given off or absorbed. Difference Between a Chemical Reaction and a Physical Change CONT. If a piece of paper is cut into small pieces it still is paper. This would be a physical change in the shape and size of the paper. If the same piece of paper is burned, it is broken up into differen substances that are not paper to give a chemical reaction Difference between a chemical reaction and a physical change Physical changes can be reversed; chemical changes cannot be reversed easily without extraordinary means, if at all.

For example, a cup of water can be frozen when cooled and then can be returned to a liquid form when heated. Mixture of sugar into water to make sugar solution is physical change as the water could be left out to evaporate and the sugar crystals would remain. Exothermic and Endothermic Reactions When heat is given off in a chemical change or reaction, It is called an exothermic reaction. When heat is absorbed in a chemical change or reaction, It

is called an endothermic reaction. The speed at which chemical reactions take place depend on the temperature pressure and how concentrated the substances involved in the chemical reaction are. Sometimes substances called catalysts are used to speed up or help along a chemical reaction.
