Abstract

A salt metathesis reaction is a chemical process involving the exchange of bonds between two reacting chemical species, which results in the creation of products with similar or identical bonding affiliations.
Hyperstructure theory is studied from the theoretical point of view and for its applications.
In this paper, we provide some examples of hyperstructures associated with salt metathesis reactions, and we observe that these chemical reactions are examples of the phenomena when composition of two elements is a set of elements.
