1. Catalyst
A substance which speeds up a chemical or biochemical reaction which, without the catalyst, would have occurred anyway but at a much slower rate. The catalyst is never used up in the reaction, so that there is always the same amount at the start and the end of the reaction. Enzyme s are biological catalysts.
