You talking about something like CuSO45H2O, CoCl26H2O and SnCl22H2O

Or, maybe, even something like:

H2SO4 + Ca(OH)2 --> CaSO4 + 2H2O

or:

CH3COOH + C2H5OH --> CH3CO-OC2H5 + 2H2O

or:

2AlH3 + 6CuO --> Al2O3 + 6Cu + 3H2O

or:

CO2(g) + 2H2(g) → C(s) + 2H2O(l) (Bosch reaction)

...
...

Between two solid chemicals:

(COOH)2 (ossalic acid) + Ca(OH)2 --> Ca(COO)2 (calcium ossalate) + 2H2O

Burn any of the huge number of possible hydrocarbons in air.
