Catalysts have the effect of controlling the reaction rate and efficiency of specific chemical reactions, making them extremely important substances in industrial chemistry and polymer chemistry synthesis. In recent years, catalysts have greatly contributed to the production of more environmentally friendly chemical products and the utilization of sustainable clean energy. They also help purify the environment by decomposing harmful substances and supplying plant promoting nitrogen and phosphorous to the soil through enzymes. There are many types of catalysts, and their constituents and appearances are various, requiring analytical instruments to be used during catalyst research for catalyst preparation, characterization, and catalytic reaction evaluation. Shimadzu Corporation provides various analytical and measuring instruments useful for catalyst research.
