This song describes how you can make products using redox reactions. Synthesis, decomposition and single replacement reactions are detailed here. Music and lyrics copyright 2007 by Mark Rosengarten. All rights reserved.

Lyrics:

So you want to make a product, but don't know what to do?
It's time for me to make another chemical rescue!
To make a product that you want, you must have no doubt
What reaction makes your product, you have to figure out!
You want to make a compound, your choice is really sweet
Synthesis reactions make your product dreams complete
React elements together that your compound does contain
And you can get your product made with very little pain!
If magnesium reacts, you know, like crazy with chlorine
(That's a gas that's nasty, it's corrosive and it's green)
You will get a compound called magnesium chloride
That's a synthesis reaction, couldn't botch it if you tried!
Synthesis reactions are for making compounds, true
But if you want an element, then what else can you do?
To make a product that you want, you must have no doubt
What reaction makes your product, you have to figure out!
Groups 1 and 2 and seventeen are never found when pure
They're only found in compounds, and so here is the cure
Decomposition breaks a compound up to elements
Using this reaction to get products does make sense!
If you want some hydrogen, to make a fuel cell car
Decomposition is the best reaction, yes, by far
Take some water molecules and you can break them down
Into hydrogen and oxygen, now you can drive to town!
So if an element you want, then decomp is the word
But the cost of energy to do it is absurd
To make a product that you want, you must have no doubt
What reaction makes your product, you have to figure out!
Let's say you have a metal in a compound that you need
Find a more reactive metal, and do it with some speed!
The more reactive metal bumps out the one we want
The French name of the reaction? Single replacement!
Let's take some copper sulfate, you want the copper out
So find an active metal, such as zinc, a chemist shouts
The zinc will bond with sulfate, the copper is turned free
The reaction is quite simple, we accomplished it with glee!
So you made your product, you now know what to do?
Next time you need to make one, I leave it up to you
To make a product that you want, no longer have a doubt
What reaction makes your product is what you figured out!
