There is something intrinsically fascinating about catalysts. The thought that a material can speed up a reaction by hundreds or thousands of times without being consumed is truly amazing. I frequently have the pleasure of teaching undergraduate and graduate chemical reaction engineering courses that include sections on catalysts. I have found that students take an immediate interest in catalysts and are fascinated by how they work. I certainly have been captivated with catalysts myself, as I have devoted my entire academic career to studying their properties. [...]
