Homogeneous Catalysis - Contrast With Heterogeneous Catalysis
... Homogeneous catalysis differs from heterogeneous catalysis in that the catalyst is in a different phase than the reactants ... One example of heterogeneous catalysis is the petrochemical alkylation process, where the liquid reactants are immiscible with a solution containing the catalyst ...
