The reactivity series of metals

 Definition: the metal reactivity series is used to predict displacement reactions, either:

1.  Electrolysis

2.  Displacement reactions (metal against compound)

3.  Reduction reactions (carbon against compound)

 

In the reactivity series metal reactivity has its own list

Note:

1.  Carbon is only included to predict displacement of metals in compound.

2.  Hydrogen is only included to predict electrolysis reactions.
