Neutralization and precipitation reaction are the double displacement reactions?

Yes, neutralization and precipitation reaction is double displacement reactions. These two reactions are types of double displacement reaction.

A neutralization reaction is a double displacement reaction taking place between the acids and the bases. The reaction between vinegar and baking soda is an example of a neutralization reaction. This reaction is used in explaining how do volcanoes erupt.

A precipitation reaction is a double displacement reaction taking place between two aqueous ionic compounds which forms a new insoluble ionic compound. The reaction between lead(II) nitrate and potassium iodide is an example of a precipitation reaction.

Other types of displacement reactions are:

  • Acid-carbonate reactions
  • Alkylation
  • Counter-ion exchange
