Homogeneous catalysis is a type of catalysis in which the catalyst operates in the same phase as the reactants — usually dissolved in a solvent. Mechanistic studies of homogeneous catalysts are generally easier than those of heterogeneous catalysts, which aids optimization. They can, however, be difficult to separate from the products and thus recycle.
