I'm not sure if this is what you are asking, but a chemical reaction that happens in water or that uses water as one of its solvents is called an aqueous solution.

Electroysis. When you pass electricity through water, it decomposes to produce two gaseous elements, oxygen and carbon dioxide. It has a reactant and also a product formed after the reaction.

Your question isn't very clear because based on 'another substance' it could refer to anything but usually if you are referring to a mix with water it would be an aqueous solution
