Catalysis

Catalysis is the increase in the rate of a chemical reaction of one or more reactants due to the participation of an additional substance called a catalyst. Unlike other reagents in the chemical reaction, a catalyst is not consumed by the reaction. With a catalyst, less free energy is required to reach the transition state, but the total free ener...

Catalysis

(In topic `Tools, Methods & Processes`) Catalysis is a rapidly emerging UML-based approach that provides complete support for the systematic business-driven development of component-based systems from frameworks.  As a non-proprietary, OO method for CBD,  very different from other methods, Catalysis is mainly concerned with building reuse com...

Catalysis

• (n.) Dissolution; degeneration; decay. • (n.) A process by which reaction occurs in the presence of certain agents which were formerly believed to exert an influence by mere contact. It is now believed that such reactions are attended with the formation of an intermediate compound or compounds, so that by alternate composition and decom...

Catalysis

Catalysis: The process by which a substance speeds up a chemical reaction without being consumed or altered in the process. Substances that can accomplish this remarkable feat are termed catalysts and are of immense importance in chemistry and biology. All enzymes are catalysts that expedite the biochemical reactions necessary for life. The enzymes...
