Catalysts

Catalysts are vital instruments of the chemical industry that essentially speed up reactions by providing a different reaction pathway with a lower activation energy whilst not being used up in the reaction, not only does this mean that we can perform reactions faster (for example iron used in the Haber process to make ammonia) and perform reactions in different (less costly/dangerous) conditions but it also means we can complete reactions that would otherwise not be possible, leading to a clear importance within not just industry but society as a whole. 995 more words
