What Is Intermediate Complex Theory Of Catalysis?

Catalyst is a substance which alter or change the current rate of reaction. The compound is formed with less energy consumption than needed for the actual reaction. The intermediate compound being unstable combines with other reactant to form the desired product and the catalyst is regenerated. Usually, homogenous catalysis follows intermediate compound formation theory of catalysis. What actually happened here, is that due to the intermediate complex formation, activation energy decreases and rate of reaction accelerates.
