Expert Answer:

The characteristics of a good catalyst can be summarised as follows:
(a) It must be able to chemisorb the reactants sufficiently strongly to cover the entire surface, but not so strongly that it is difficult to persuade them to react.
(b) They must also be chemisorbed in the right form, that is, in the way that encourages them to make only the desired product.
