The common reaction types of reactions are:

  • Combination/Synthesis → multiple reactants combine to form a single product w/o change in oxidation numbers
  • Decomposition →reactant splits into multiple products with no change in oxidation numbers
  • Combustion reaction: reaction with oxygen that produces carbon dioxide and water

Hydrocarbon + O2→ CO+ H2O
