    Chapter 6. Some Types of Chemical Reactions in Chemistry by Whitten


    A solution is a homogenous mixture of 2 or more substances.

    The solute is the substance present in the smaller amount.

    The solventis the substance present in the larger amount.

    water-soluble solutes can be:

    1. electrolytes aqueous solutions conduct electricity

    a. strong electrolytesb. weak electrolytes

    2. non-electrolytes aqueous solutions do not conduct electricity

    What happens when a substance dissolves in water?


    process in which an ionic compound separates into its ions when dissolved in water NaCl(s) Na+(aq) + Cl-(aq)


    process in which acids and bases separate or react with water to form ions in solution acids and bases are molecular compounds that behave like ionic compounds in water HCl(g) H+(aq) + Cl-(aq)


    process in which an ion is surrounded bywater molecules arranged in a specific manner

    Non-electrolytes do not conduct electricity because molecular compounds do not form ions in solution.


    Ionic compounds that are soluble in water are strong electrolytes: 100% dissociation (strong electrolytes)

    Strong and weak acids

    strong acids

    100% ionization (strong electrolytes)

    HCl(g) H+

    (aq) + Cl-(aq)

    all the HCl molecules are ionized into H+ and Cl-weak acids partial ionization only (

    All weak inorganic acids ionize reversibly ( ) or in equilibrium reactions - Reversible Reactions This is why they ionize less than 100%.

    Strong Bases

    soluble ionic metal hydroxides (usually of groups I and II), NaOH, KOH, CsOH

    some metal hydroxides are insoluble: Ca(OH)2, Cu(OH)2, Fe(OH)3

    similarly to strong acids, strong bases ionize 100% in water; weak bases that

    ionize slightly in water

    strong electrolytes

    Weak Basespartial ionization only; example: NH3 (weak electrolyte)



    increase in oxidation number loss of electronreduction:

    decrease in oxidation number gain of electron

    oxidizing agent:

    substance that is reduced oxidizes the other substancereducing agent:

    substance that is oxidized reduces the other substance


    2NaI + Cl2 2NaCl + I2

    2KMnO4 + 16HCl 2MnCl2 + 2KCl + 5Cl2 + 8H2O

    2Mg + O2 2MgO

    2H2SO3 + O2 4H+

    + 2SO4-2

    H2SO3 is oxidized. The oxidation state of S in H2SO3 is +4. In SO42-, S has an oxidation state of +6.

    O2 is reduced. Oxidation state of O in O2 is 0 In SO42-, O has an oxidation state of2.

    H2SO3 is reducing agent. O2 is oxidizing agent.

    Disproportionation reaction: 2H2O2 2H2O + O2

    Occur when two or more substances combine to form a compound There are three basic types of combination reactions:

    1. element + element

    metal + nonmetal binary ionic compound

    2Na(s) + Cl2 (g) 2NaCl(s)

    nonmetal + nonmetal binary molecular compound

    P4 (s) + 6Cl2 (g) 4PCl3 (l)

    2. compound + element compound

    PCl3 (l) + Cl2 (g) PCl5 (s)

    3. compound + compound compound

    CaO (s) + CO2 (g) CaCO3 (s)

    DECOMPOSITION REACTIONSDecomposition reactions occur when one compound decomposes to form:

    1. compound element + element

    2H2O (l) 2H2 (g) + O2 (g)

    2. compound compound + element

    2KClO3 (s) 2KCl(s) + 3O2 (g)

    3. compound compound + compound

    CaCO3 (s) CaO (s) + CO2 (g)


    Occur when one element displaces another element from a compound.

    These are redox reactions in which the more active metal displaces the less active metal of

    hydrogen from a compound in aqueous solution.

    Activity series is given in Table 4-14.

    1. more active metal + salt of less active metal

    Zn(s) + CuSO4(aq) Cu(s) + ZnSO4(aq) re: activity series

    2. active metal + non-oxidizing acidZn(s) + H2SO4(aq) ZnSO4(aq) + H2 (g)

    3. active nonmetal + salt of less active nonmetal

    Cl2 (g) + 2NaBr(aq) 2NaCl(aq) + Br2 (g) F2 > Cl2 > Br2 > I2

    Occur when two ionic aqueous solutions are mixed and the ions switch partners.AX + BY AY + BX

    Metathesis reactions remove ions from solution in two ways:1. form predominantly unionized molecules like H2O2. form an insoluble solid

    Ion removal is the driving force of metathesis reactions.


    the products are always a salt and water: acid + base salt + waterexample: HCl(aq) + NaOH(aq) NaCl(aq) + H2O (g)


    metathesis reactions in which an insoluble compound is formed precipitate: insoluble solid

    AgNO3 (aq) + NaCl(aq) AgCl(s) + NaNO3 (aq)

    Net ionic equation

    Shows ions that participate in reaction and removes spectator ions.

    Spectator ions do not participate in the reaction. In the total and net ionic equations the only common substances that should be written as ions are:

    Strong acids Strong bases Soluble ionic salts


    Write the net ionic equation for the reaction of silver nitrate with sodium chloride.

    a. write the molecular equation:

    AgNO3 (aq) + NaCl (aq) AgCl (s) + NaNO3 (aq)

    b. write the ionic equation:


    + NO3-+ Na

    ++ Cl

    -AgCl (s) + Na

    ++ NO3


    c. eliminate the spectator ions: (Na+and NO3



    + NO3-+ Na
