  • Fischer–Tropsch process
    The Fischer–Tropsch process is a collection of chemical reactions that converts a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen into liquid hydrocarbons.
  • Adsorption
    Adsorption is the adhesion of atoms, ions, or molecules from a gas, liquid, or dissolved solid to a surface.
  • Catalase
    Catalase is a common enzyme found in nearly all living organisms exposed to oxygen (such as bacteria, plants, and animals).
  • Catalysis
    Catalysis (/kəˈtælᵻsᵻs/) is the increase in the rate of a chemical reaction due to the participation of an additional substance called a catalyst (/ˈkætəlᵻst/).
  • Fermentation
    Fermentation is a metabolic process that converts sugar to acids, gases, or alcohol.
  • Photocatalysis
    In chemistry, photocatalysis is the acceleration of a photoreaction in the presence of a catalyst.
  • Catalytic converter
    A catalytic converter is an emissions control device that converts toxic gases and pollutants in exhaust gas to less toxic pollutants by catalyzing a redox reaction (an oxidation and a reduction reaction).
  • Active site
    In biology, the active site is the region of an enzyme where substrate molecules bind and undergo a chemical reaction.
  • Haber process
    The Haber process, also called the Haber–Bosch process, is an artificial nitrogen fixation process and is the main industrial procedure for the production of ammonia today.
  • Enzyme catalysis
    Enzyme catalysis is the increase in the rate of a chemical reaction by the active site of a protein.
  • Sharpless epoxidation
    The Sharpless epoxidation reaction is an enantioselective chemical reaction to prepare 2,3-epoxyalcohols from primary and secondary allylic alcohols.
  • Heterogeneous catalysis
    In chemistry, heterogeneous catalysis refers to the form of catalysis where the phase of the catalyst differs from that of the reactants.
  • Steam reforming
    Steam reforming is a method for producing hydrogen, carbon monoxide, or other useful products from hydrocarbon fuels such as natural gas.
  • Cuprospinel
    Cuprospinel, occurs naturally in Baie Verte, Newfoundland, Canada.
  • Jacobsen's catalyst
    Jacobsen's catalyst is the common name for N,N'-bis(3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene)-1,2-cyclohexanediaminomanganese(III) chloride, a coordination compound of manganese and a salen-type ligand.
