Bio-catalysis and Energy Conservation

What is Bio-catalysis?

Bio-catalysis is a process that makes use of natural catalysts like protein enzymes to chemically transform complex organic compounds.


A bio-catalyst is a substance that aids in accelerating or modifying a physiological process of change. Common bio-catalysts are nothing but enzymes. Enzymes are basically proteins that act as catalysts in chemical reactions.
