Learning the Core Difference Between Catalysts and Enzymes

Two things that severely impact the reaction rate are catalysts and enzymes. By and large, almost all enzymes known to mankind today are catalysts, but all catalysts aren’t necessarily enzymes. To understand the difference on a basic level, enzymes are untreated by nature and tend to be bio-catalysts. On the other hand, catalysts that are…
