Synthesis Reaction

What Are Synthesis Reactions?

They are a direct combination of two or more chemicals into one product or mixture.

Example

None of the equations are balanced

H2 + O2 = H2O

Explanation: 

Two different elements combine to form one whole (complex) compound. There is only one substance on the right side of the equation, but two or more substances on the other site of the equation.

There are some categories that apply:

  1. “Direct union of two elements will produce a binary compound.”
  2. “Metallic oxides and carbon dioxide react to produce carbonates”
  3. “Binary salts and oxygen react to produce a chlorate”

The way that it is related to my life is that this is the way it is able to make water.

A + B —> AB

A + B is AB,  that;’s synthesis for you!
