Burning is a chemical reaction that involves the outer electrons of the substances. Usually, oxygen is one the elements, and something else that has excess electrons is the other. All chemical elements that aren't stable... More »

Compounds of silicon and hydrogen, known as silanes, react explosively with oxygen and react with water, forming silicon dioxide and water and silicon dioxide and hydrogen gas respectively. Silicon accounts for 28 percen... More »

When magnesium burns in air, the oxygen in the air reacts with magnesium metal to produce magnesium oxide. However, for this reaction to occur, heat must be applied. The chemical equation for this reaction is 2Mg + O2 pr... More »

Glycerol contains the elements carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Glycerol is also known as glycerin, glycerine, 1,2,3-propanetriol, glyceritol, glycyl alcohol and trihydroxypropane. As the last name suggests, glycerol contain... More »

Pure hydrogen peroxide is composed of two molecules of hydrogen and two molecules of oxygen, so its chemical formula is H2O2. However, the hydrogen peroxide sold in most stores is actually a solution, which typically onl... More »
