In Chemistry, Catalysis is the process of increasing the rate of a chemical reaction by adding a substance known as a catalyst. A catalyst decreases the activation energy of a chemical reaction. It participates in reactions but is neither reactants nor products of the reaction they catalyze. The rates of chemical reaction that is, the velocities at which they occur depend upon a number of factors, including the chemical nature of the reacting species and the external conditions to which they are exposed.
In general, chemical reaction occurs faster in the presence of a catalyst because the catalyst provides an alternative reaction mechanism with lower activation energy than the non-catalyzed mechanism. In catalyzed mechanisms, the catalyst usually reacts to form a temporary intermediate, which then regenerates the original catalyst in a cyclic process.
