Lecture 15 – Catalysis
In this lecture students will learn about the importance of catalysis and the added benefits it provides in all levels of chemistry. Students will see how catalysts make reactions more efficient by means of the activation energy. More importantly, students will be introduced to alternative types of catalysis that Green Chemistry utilizes to create more environmentally responsible processes.
