Catalysis is one of the oldest branches in Chemistry. This field primarily deals with the speed of chemical reactions and ways of manipulating them. Right from living systems to large-scale production of fine chemicals like pharmaceuticals and plastics, the science and technology of catalysis plays a pivotal role. I will introduce the chemistry aspects of catalysis at a general level and proceed to discuss on the increasing relevance of this science in sustainability. I will draw a few examples from my research as well as others during the discussion.
