Catalysts and Rate Law

Postby Jessica Esparza 2H » Tue Mar 10, 2020 3:08 pm

I know intermediates can't be in our rate law but can catalysts be included?

I think catalysts can be included sometimes. See this post by Chem_Mod: viewtopic.php?t=1727

Hope this helps!

From what I remember from Lavelle's lecture, catalysts are purely mechanisms that lower activation energy and are not included in the equation, therefore, they will not be in the rate law

That's what I remember from lecture as well!

Catalysis is the process of increasing the rate of a chemical reaction by adding a substance known as a catalyst
