Kinetics and Nuclear Chemistry: Chemistry: Challenges and Solutions



From an instantaneous explosion to the slow rusting of iron, the rates at which different chemical reactions proceed can vary tremendously depending temperature and concentration. Chemists want to slow down or speed up reaction rates. One way to do this is to use a catalyst. In this video, we will learn about catalysts and how using them can lead to cheaper, more effective drug production processes.
