. What is the decomposition reaction Explain it with suitable examples

Best Answer


Decomposition reaction is the process by which a single compound is broken down into two or more components or new compounds.

This type of reaction necessitates the use of a source of energy, such as light, heat, or electricity, to dissolve the bonds between compounds.

H2O2 → H2 + O2

This is an electrolytic decomposition reaction.

Decomposition reactions can be classified into the following categories:

1 Thermochemical decomposition

2 Reaction of electrolytic decomposition

3 Photo decomposition reaction.
