The Floating Catalyst: An Enzyme Reaction Demonstration—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

Almost all of the chemical reactions in living organisms are catalyzed by enzymes—nature’s highly active catalysts—which make chemical reactions occur about one million times faster than they would alone. With The Floating Catalyst: An Enzyme Reaction Demonstration—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, look at the reaction of catalase, one of the most active known enzymes, as it catalyzes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide in plant and animal tissues. Available as part of the Kinetics—ChemTopic™ Labs digital collection. Click the Price link for digital collection pricing.
