How are heterogeneous catalysts separated from a reaction's products?

A) Chromatographically
B) Distillation
C) Filtration
D) They are not separated.

Heterogeneous Catalysts

Catalysts that exist in a different phase than the reactants in a chemical reaction, facilitating the reaction without being consumed.

Chromatographically

Pertaining to chromatography, a method for separating components of a mixture based on differences in their movement through a stationary medium.

Filtration

A process used to separate solids from liquids or gases using a filter medium that allows the fluid to pass but not the solid.

  • Distinguish between catalysts that are homogeneous from those that are heterogeneous.
