What are some examples of synthesis reactions?
A synthesis reaction, also known as a composition reaction, is characterized by the reaction of two or more substances chemically joining to form a single product.
Here are three examples
Magnesium metal reacts with oxygen to produce magnesium oxide
In this next example, sodium reacts with chloride to form table salt.
In the examples above, two different elements react to form a compound.
In the last example, two different compounds react to form a new compound which is a single product.
Calcium oxide reacts with sulfur dioxide to produce calcium sulfite.
