A Catalyst article explaining how enzymes allow chemical reactions in all living organisms to proceed quickly, under conditions where they would normally be very slow. By isolating enzymes that could be used to catalyze reactions, scientists have started a major biotechnology industry. The article describes how enzymes work, and how they can be used and improved in products such as biological detergents.

This article is part of Catalyst: GCSE Science Review 2003, Volume 13, Issue 3.
