Understanding catalysis

49 min 26 sec ago

Chem. Soc. Rev., 2014, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C4CS00210E, Tutorial ReviewEmil Roduner
Catalysts often perform miraculous transformations of reactants A to very different products P in seemingly a single step. Such catalysts appear as a black box. This tutorial shows how we can shine light into this black box and understand the reaction mechanism. In particular, it aims at explaining some of the fundamental principles of the action of a catalyst.
