I did an experiment where I had to compare the catalase of the leaven and the catalase of the white turnip. After my observations, I concluded the leaven is a better catalyst than the white turnip because its speed of reaction is faster. I was wondering why is that so? Is it because the leaven is unicellular and the white turnip is pluricellular? I've tried to search on google and in some books but I just can't find the answer anywhere.
Is leaven a yeast organism?

On page 12 they discuss a similar experiment with a turnip.
Cool thread title. Doesn't the white turnip seem victimized? Are we witnessing racism on a biological level?
A catalyst family lived down the street. They must have had 7 kids.
