1 Double Displacement (or Replacement) Reactions
Also referred to as metathesis reaction The two compounds exchange ions to produce two new compounds. It is easier to simply remember that the cations (+ ions) exchange anions (- ions). AB + CD  CB + AD NOTE: always write the cation first then the anion. Many reactions including precipitation and neutralization use the double displacement mechanism.

2 Double Displacement (or Replacement) Reactions
PREDICT THE PRODUCT & BALANCE 1. MgSO4 + LiOH  ___________ 2. Pb(NO3)2 + Na2CO3  ____________ 3. HNO3 + Ba(OH)2  ___________ Answers are on the next slide.

3 Double Displacement (or Replacement) Reactions
ANSWERS 1. MgSO4 + 2 LiOH  Mg(OH)2 + Li2SO4 2. Pb(NO3)2 + Na2CO3  PbCO3 + 2 NaNO3 3. 2 HNO3 + Ba(OH)2  Ba(NO3)2 + 2 H2O Exchange cations

A reaction where an insoluble solid is formed during a reaction between two aqueous solutions. (aq) (aq)  (aq) (s) 2KI(aq) + Pb(NO3)2(aq)  2KNO3(aq) + PbI2(s) NEUTRALIZATION REACTION A reaction between an acid and a base which results in the production of a salt and water. HA + BOH  (metal/nonmetal) + H2O HNO3(aq) + KOH(aq)  KNO3(aq) + H2O(l) Exchange cations

5 Single Displacement (or Replacement) Reactions
One element reacts with a compound to produce a different element and a new compound. A + BC  AC + B NOTE: if the element is a metal, it will replace the cation. A + BC  C + BA NOTE: if the element is a nonmetal, it will replace the anion. Many reduction-oxidation reactions use the single displacement mechanism.

6 Single Displacement (or Replacement) Reactions
PREDICT THE PRODUCT 1. Ca + HCl  2. ZnBr2 + I2  3. Cu + AgNO3  Answers are on the next slide.

7 Single Displacement (or Replacement) Reactions
ANSWERS: 1. Ca + 2 HCl  CaCl2 + H2 2. ZnBr2 + I2  ZnI2 + Br2 3. Cu + 2AgNO3  2Ag + Cu(NO3)2

8 Reduction-Oxidation Reactions
A reaction in which electrons are transferred from one species to another. Oxidation means the loss of electrons Reduction means the gain of electrons Rusting is a redox reaction: 4Fe (s) + 3O2 (g)  2Fe2O3 (s) As a reactant Fe has a zero oxidation state but as a product (in Fe2O3) iron has a 3+ oxidation state. Three electrons per atom had to be transferred (lost) in order for this to happen. Note that oxygen also changed from a zero oxidation state to a 2- oxidation state. Oxygen needed to gain 2 electrons per atom.

9 Reduction-Oxidation Reactions
Oxidation means the loss of electrons Reduction means the gain of electrons Electrochemistry involves redox Rx. Cu(s) + 2AgNO3(aq)  2Ag(s) + Cu(NO3)2(aq) The reactant Cu has a zero oxidation state (all elements have a zero oxidation state) but as a product, in Cu(NO3)2,the copper atom loses two electrons and has a 2+ oxidation state. The other atom which acquired the electrons donated by copper is silver. As a reactant silver has a 1+ oxidation state then by gaining electrons from copper, the ions are turned into elemental silver with a zero oxidation state. The net effect of this reaction has metallic copper being oxidized to copper ions and silver ions being reduced to silver metal.

COMBINATION REACTION A reaction in which two or more substances combine to form a single product. A +B + C  ABC CaO(s) + SO2(g)  CaSO3(s) DECOMPOSITION REACTION A reaction in which a single compound reacts to give two or more substances, usually requiring a raise in temperature. ABC  A + B + C 2KClO3(s)  2KCl(s) + 3O2(g)

A reaction of a substance with oxygen, usually the rapid release of heat produces a flame. CH + O2  CO2 + H2O 2C4H10(g) + 13O2(g)  8CO2(g) + 10H2O(g) Many times in a combustion reaction, heat energy is given off. In chemical terms this is called an exothermic reaction. Thermochemistry is field of chemistry which studies the transfer of heat in a reaction. The thermodynamic equation representing this exothermic reaction is: 2C4H10(g) + 13O2(g)  8CO2(g) + 10H2O(g) + heat (in Joules)

A reaction that produces a gas from reactants not in the gaseous state. 2 HCl (aq) + ZnS (s)  ZnCl2 (aq) + H2S (g) Zn (s) + 2 HCl (aq)  ZnCl2 (aq) + H2 (g) Many gas formation reactions involve two steps, first the double displacement reaction then the decomposition reaction of an unstable substance. Na2CO3 + 2HCl  2 NaCl + H2CO3 H2CO3  CO2 + H2O Besides carbonic acid (H2CO3), sulfurous acid (H2SO3) also decomposes into SO2 and water.
