Catalysts

Postby rkang00 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 8:23 pm

Do catalysts not show up the overall rxn, but can start out in individual mechanism steps - get consumed - then get re-formed? What are the key features that define a catalyst in a rxn mechanism?

Catalysts show up in the beginning of the reaction and at the end. The substances that are consumed are called intermediates.

Also, intermediates have to be formed and then consumed.
