Post by pattyhsujsp » Wed Oct 17, 2007 6:30 pm

1. can you denature an organic catalyst?
2. can you denature an inorganic catalyst?
3. can you denature catalase?
4. can you denature MnO2?
5. What could you do to liver to try to denature the catalyst in liver?
6. If you are able/not able to denature the catalyst liver, then is it catalase or MnO2?

Do you know the definition of denature?
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

inorganic catalyst: platinum. Can you dentaure that?
enzyme=protein. Can you denture that?
