Recognising the Type of Reaction

Recognising the Type of Reaction

This helps you work out what the products may be, but also answer other questions about the reaction. Students often find this very difficult, mainly due to a lack of practice and experience. This simple information sheet with examples at the back is in black and white so can be readily photocopied.
