You get to know the major kinds of chemical reactions including polymerization, hydrolysis, combustion, replacements, and redox. Experiment with some electrochemical reactions as well.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
What is a double-replacement or double-displacement reaction?
~ A double-replacement reaction occurs when the positive ions of one compound are replaced by the positive ions of another. In a double replacement reaction, both reactants must be compounds, not elements.
Does a double-replacement reaction always result when two ionic compounds are mixed together? Explain.
~ No; mixing ionic compounds does not always result in double-replacement reactions. For example, when two ionic compounds in solid form are mixed, a double-replacement reaction does not take place.
