yes it does.

 

edit: I just took a look at one of those links and it even says so There!

 

"Zn2+ + 2OH- -> Zn(OH)2(s)

 

Zinc reacts with H+ ions, according to the following reaction mechanism:

 

Zn(s) + 2H+ -> Zn2+(aq) + H2(g)"

First, ripa1, always trust YT2095 on chemistry over myself. Like I said, I just googled. He actually has a clue.

 

However, both sites say that zinc won't react to a water molecule, but it does react with Hydrogen ions.

 

So, was your question "Does zinc react with water molecules?" or was your question "Does zince react with Hydrogen ions?" This will make a world of difference on what the answer is (essentially, the first one is no, and the second is yes).

 

Enjoy.

Zinc will react with Water (that`s where the H2 comes in).

however because it`s so Reactive, Like Alu, it forms a Hydroxide layer almost instantly, and that layer protects the metal underneath it.

 

but yes Zinc is Quite reactive to water, and can even be used in Cathodic protection, although Magnesium is often preferred.
