This is a catalyst. A catalyst doesn't get destroyed during the reaction. Rather it's more of a reaction site where two substances can combine. One example of a catalyst is amyl alcohol, which can be used to produce pure potassium metal. However, it's destroyed during the process if there are impurities in the reaction because it's consumed in other reactions. Other examples of catalysts include catalase, platinum, and manganese(IV) oxide.
