What is the term used to describe organic catalysts?
organic catalysts made of protein are called enzymes (these are usually made by living things) nonprotein based organic catalysts are simply called organic catalysts (these are usually synthesized artificially) ...

Organic catalysts are called polysaccharides?
No, polysaccharides are a kind of sugars with much higher molecular mass and composed of monomers.The organic catalysts are catalysts that posses organic nature (They are carbon's compounds).The most common organic catalysts are the enzymes (which are proteins in fact) found in the living organisms. ...

What kind of organic molecule is an enzyme?
An enzyme is a protein that helps other organic molecules enter into chemical reactions with one another but is itself unchanged by these reactions. Enzymes act as catalysts for organic biochemical reactions. ...

Are Enzymes organic catalysts or biological catalyst?
Both. Enzymes are known as biological catalysts because they speed up reactions within cells. They are organic because they are (tertiary) proteins and protein has c-c (carbon to carbon) bonds making it an organic material. ...
