Give some examples of second-order chemical reactions

Here are some of the examples of the second-order chemical reactions which are not balanced because some of the following reactions are intermediate reactions of some another reactions.

H+ + OH → H2O

Inthis above reaction hydrogen ion and hydroxyl ions form water.

O + O3 → O2 + O2

During combustion reaction, oxygen atom and ozone can form oxygen molecules.

O2 + C → O + CO

Another combustion reaction, in this oxygen molecules react with carbon to form oxygen atoms and carbon monoxide.


Ammonium cyanate in water isomerizes into urea.
