Catalysis

Postby Yareli Cervantes 2C » Wed Mar 13, 2024 7:41 pm

When it comes to catalysis, why is it that lower energy values affect thermodynamics? Does that mean only high temps can and what effects can it have?

There is less of an energy barrier to overcome for a reaction to occur. So for a spontaneous reaction that has a catalyst, it will be easier for that reaction to occur and that reaction will happen at a faster rate. I'm not sure what you mean by high temps. Catalysts can let reaction happen at lower temps.

Catalysts make this process more efficient by lowering the activation energy. catalysts make it easier for atoms to break and form chemical bonds to produce new combinations and new substances. It increases the rate of the chemical reaction, forming products faster. Catalysts increase with increasing temperature. Homogeneous catalysts are often more sensitive to temperature.
