Biochemists experiment with the oxothermic decomposition of hydrogen dioxide by adding manganese dioxide. They observe how pepsin enhances the action of acid on the digestion of egg white proteins. They use yeast to make bread rise. All of these activities enlighten learners on enzyme and catalyst ability to enhance chemical reaction rates. Use them with your high school biology class when studying the digestive system.
