Catalysts (transition metals)

Mechanism of catalysis The minimum energy required for reactants to undergo a chemical reaction is known as the Activation Energy (Ea). A catalysed reaction provides an alternative route for the chemical reaction at a lower activation energy, hence increases the rate of reaction. Transition metals, by virtue of their ability to readily change their oxidation states, generate intermediate species that enable the
