a characteristic of a substance that describes a type of chemical change it can undergo. A substance's flammability is one kind of chemical property.
the ability of a substance to undergo a chemical change. (see physical property)
a property used to characterize materials in reactions that change their identity
the ability of a substance to change to a different substance.
Faraday's law Ka oxidation-reduction reaction strong acid
chemical properties. Compare with physical property. Measurement of a chemical property involves a chemical change. For example, determining the flammability of gasoline involves burning it, producing carbon dioxide and water.
a property that involves change in the chemical nature of a substance
The phrase "chemical property" is context-dependent, but generally refers to a material's behaviour at ambient conditions (i.e. room temperature, atmospheric pressure, oxygen-bearing atmosphere). This property becomes apparent during a chemical reaction, and can only be observed by changing a substance's chemical identity.
