How to predict products?

Synthesis reaction involves cobining of two or more compounds to form a more complex compound.

The basic form of this equation is as folows
A+B→ AB

Rules for predicting products

1. Metal reacts with oxygen to form metal oxide

synthesis reactions


2.Nonmetal reacts with oxygen to form nonmetallic oxide.
nonmetaloxides

3.Metal oxides react with water to make metallic hydroxides.
metal-hydroxides

4.Nonmetallic oxide react with water to make an acid.
nonmetallic-acids

5.A metal react with non metal to make a salt.
synthesis-of-salt

6.A few non metals combine with each other.
nonmetalscombine

These two reactions must be remembered
