There is a textbook that mentions that PbO2 + 4HCl -> PbCl2 + 2H2O + Cl2 is NOT a neutralization reaction while PbO + 2HNO3 -> Pb(NO3)2 + H20 is a neutralization reaction. The explanation given is that in the first reaction besides a salt and water, chlorine is also produced while in the second reaction reaction the products are salt and water only. I would like to confirm if the explanation given is correct. Thanks!
Re: Must the products of a neutralization reaction be a salt and water only?
