Those catalytic process in which the reactant and catalyst are in a different phase is known as heterogeneous catalysis. 

Role of adsorption in heterogeneous catalysis-

  • Diffusion of reactants to the surface of the catalyst.
  • Adsorption of reactant is on the surface of the catalyst.
  • The chemical reaction can occur at the catalyst surface by intermediate formation between them.
  • Desorption of the product of the reaction is also at the surface of the catalyst.
