Unformatted text preview: -----> IO-+ H 2 O IO-+ H 2 O 2----> O 2 + H 2 O + I-Two points should be made about the above reaction. It takes two steps to happen. I-is not used up in the reaction. The reaction occurs due to contact with I-where bonds are broken and new bonds formed. What bond is broken and what new bond forms? Also, I-is an inorganic small ion. Small inorganic species that speed reactions are called catalysts. Define: Activiation Energy, catalyst (two examples), exergonic reaction, endergonic reaction. Show hydrogen peroxide and Iodide catalyst and catalase reaction. Explain how catalase identifies organisms Staph and Strep....
