Catalysis is the branch of chemistry that focuses on the production of catalysts. As the name suggests, catalysts speed up a reaction, allowing chemists to produce more of a desired product in a shorter amount of time. But what makes catalysts fascinating is the fact that they aren’t consumed in a reaction. This phenomena of recycling catalysts is the main priority in the Frantz lab, where I work to find ways to increase the amount of times a catalyst can be used.
