Heterogeneous and Homogeneous Catalysts

In this video, we look at heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysts. First we explore heterogeneous catalysts, using the Haber process as an example. We look at how heterogeneous catalysts work in terms of adsorption and desorption. We then look at homogeneous catalysts using the reactions of ozone destruction as an example. We explore how homogeneous catalysts involve the formation of an intermediate.
