Examples Homogenous & heterogenous catalystsWatch
- Study Helper
Another example of homogeneous catalysis is in dehydration/elimination reactions. An alcohol (eg. ethanol) is reacted with a concentrated phosphoric acid (H3PO4) or sulphuric acid catalyst to form ethene and water. If a more complicated alcohol such as propan-2-ol is used, multiple isomers of propene will form.
