Relating to, or causing, catalysis.
An agent employed in catalysis, as platinum black, aluminium chloride, etc.
The chemical or biological process whereby the presence and/or participation of an external catalyst molecule (i.e., enzyme), causes a chemical reaction to occur or to improve reaction performance without ultimately altering the catalyst molecule.
Accelerating a reaction.
A combining form meaning Â‘pertaining to a chemical reaction caused by an agent unchanged by the reaction'.
Catalytic wood stoves and fireplace inserts have ceramic honeycombed chambers coated with a metal catalyst (usually platinum or palladium) that works to increase the rate of combustion. The catalytic combustor burns away gases and particulates normally emitted into the air. Catalytic wood stoves allow people to burn wood at lower temperatures for longer periods of time. With Non-Catalytic wood stoves, combustion occurs in the firebox. These stoves are generally less expensive than catalytic wood stoves and require less maintenance.
A quartz fibre containing the platinum catalyst impregnates a catalytic panel. When neat gas passes through the panel, flameless combustion occurs. The reaction takes place at about around 400oC and the pilot initiates the reaction.
involving or causing an increase in the rate of a chemical reaction by the use of a catalyst.
A chemical reaction happens more quickly without changing the catalyst
