R L C P
Hierarchic Classification of Catalytic Mechanisms


Basic reaction types

  • 1.-.-.- : Hydrolysis (bond cleavage by water)
  • 2.-.-.- : Phosphorolysis (bond cleavage by phosphate)
  • 3.-.-.- : Transfer (bond cleavage and new bond formation)
  • 4.-.-.- : Addition to double-bond (new bond formation and decreased bond-order)
  • 5.-.-.- : Eliminative double-bond formation (bond cleavage and increased bond-order)
  • 6.-.-.- : Exchange of double-bonded atoms (Schiff-base related reaction)
  • 8.-.-.- : Isomerization (shift of double-bond position)
  • 9.-.-.- : Hydride transfer
  • 10.-.-.- : Electron transfer (redox reaction)
