explain how heterogeneous catalyst helps in reaction
Asked by Jayant Mohan Varma | 27th Sep, 2010, 09:57: AM
In a heterogeneous catalyst, is in a different phase from the reactants.
In heterogeneous catalysis, the reactant/s is adsorbed to the surface of the catalyst (if it is solid), the bonds of the reactant is then broken. New bonds are then made to form the product. After reaction, the products desorb from the surface and diffuse away.
