Chemical property is a property that is associated with a chemical change. It includes changes that alter the identity of a substance.  Examples of a chemical property would be reaction with oxygen, reactivity, combustivity, burning. Change of color indicates that a chemical reaction has occurred. For example burning a piece of Aluminum!

When you talk about chemical properties, it helps to think of it as the potential to undergo change. Oxidation is one such property /  change. Iron's ability to rust when exposed to oxygen is an example of a chemical property. Petroleum's ability to undergo combustion is another example of a chemical property.

I need to know what some non-examples of chemical properties are not examples of it. I need non-examples

Examples of chemical properties are:

1. Metals - Non-metals

2. Ductility

3. Malleability

4. Oxidising agent - reducing agent

5. Colour

6. Odour

7. Taste

8. pH value

Chemical properties are those properties which depend on the chemical  nature of the substance not on the phrases and structure of the substance. It remains the same even though it changes it forms.

some of them are

1. Enthaply : the internal energy

2. heat of combustion: the energy released when it is combusted.

3.oxidation state : the number of its valanced electron

4. co-ordination number: number of bond formed.

5. reactivity

here are some example of chemical change:

  • toasting of bread
  • mixing chemicals
  • rotten of fruit
  • cooking rice
  • explosion of fireworks
  • tarnishing silver
  • lighting a match
  • burning gas in a stove
  • rusting nail
  • oxidizing food for energy

Chemical properties are when a new substance appears and it is not about just changing phases (e.g, H2O is not changing its formula even though it's passing through phases like solid, liquid, and gas).

So, melting/boiling points are just physical properties.

Examples of chemical properties: solubility, polarization, acidity,
degree of iionization.

Chemiscal properties determine what kind of chemical changes will take place.  For Example, Group 1 & 2 Earth Metals are VERY reactive and Group 18 Inert Gases are UNreactive.  Metals react with acids.

Each element has chemical properties based on its atomic structure that determine how it will undergo chemical change as it reacts with other elements.

 Chemical Change occures when a new substance is formed.

Chemical Properties are internal properties which are not displayed peripherally..For example, Ability to combine with other substances, acidity or basicity of a substance etc..I think this link will be more useful to you..http://www.examville.com/populateListsForSubCategory.html?categoryId=2Try it out..
