    Consider the reaction:
    BrO3- + 5BR- + 6H+ =(arrow) 3BR2(aq) + 3H20(l)

    Suggest the function of H+ in the reaction:
    The mark scheme in the book states that H+ is a catalyst.
    I don't get why H+ is a catalyst, surely it's only a catalyst if it's reformed in the products?

    Water can dissociate to give the H+ and -OH ions, so it's technically regenerated
