    I assume you are thinking of "synthesis" for a but a question like this can have so many different meanings. But I'll go with synthesis type reactions such as
    Na + O2 ==> Na2O2--synthesis.
    BUT Na + H2O ==> H2 + NaOH--single replacement. You figure it out.

    They react this way because of the electron sructure.
