Catalase is a digestive enzyme used to break down hydrogen peroxide, which is a normal byproduct of cellular respiration. The reaction could take place without the help of catalase, but it would happen a lot more slowly because more energy is needed for the reaction. This lab demonstrates the effect the enzyme catalase has on the rate of the decomposition reaction of hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen gas...

It would be expected that extreme temperatures or pHs would denature the enzyme, directly affecting the rate of reaction. It is also safe to assume that the rate of reaction would be higher in the preliminary seconds of the reaction due to higher substrate concentrations. The rate of reaction would eventually slow when most of the substrate (H2O¬2) has decomposed...
