Examples of Negatve Catalysts

Catalysts that decrease or retard the rate of reaction is known as negative catalysts. Chemical reactions are retarded by the presence of foreign substances and these substances are negative catalysts. A few examples of negative catalysts are:

  • Phosphoric acid labours as a negative catalyst for the decomposition of H202
  • Alcohol acts as a negative catalyst in the oxidation of Na2SO3
