Reaction Prediction - Is there a reaction?

Quote Quote by AnomalyCoder View Post
I was hoping for something a little more general, Bipolarity.
As in, how can one tell whether or not there is a reaction, without googling to find out.
Metal oxides are basic, particularly those of the Group I and Group II metals. This means they produce hydroxides when dissolved in water.

So you have,
Metal oxide + Water --> Metal hydroxide
