How to go about Synthesis and Decomposition of compounds

  1. Jan 6, 2004 #1
    Can anyone explain to me really quick how to go about Synthesis and Decomposition of compounds, can you show me an example with Aluminum Flouride and Potassium Chloride ? Thank you for your help

    Not exactly sure what you are wanting. decomposition breaks the compounds apart into ions which would join with another metal/nonmetal (which would be synthesis)
