16.8 Catalyst Catalyst speed up a reaction They do not make more product they just make it quicker Catalyst lower the activation energy of the reaction thereby making k larger k = A e -Ea/RT

16.8 Catalyst Two types of catalyst Homogenous- in the same phase (s, l, g) as the reaction Heterogenous- in a different phase as the reaction Most heterogenous reactions are a solid that provide a set area for an interaction
