The old classification of basic chemical reactions was evaluated and a new systematic classification of basic reactions was proposed.In the new classification,all the chemical reactions were divided into oxidation-reduction reactions and non-oxidation-reduction reactions,and both can be divided into combination reaction,decomposition reaction and replacement reaction,respectively.In addition,a new class of basic reactions,the complicated decomposition reaction,was appended to reaction system.

Key words: Chemical reaction, Classification, Multi-replacement reaction, Complicated decomposition reaction
