Page 4 - When I use a word ... it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less.
Page 2 - I shall therefore, using a derivation well-known in chemistry, call it the catalytic power of the substances, and decomposition by means of this power catalysis, just as we use the word analysis to denote the separation of the component parts of bodies by means of ordinary chemical forces. Catalytic power actually means that substances are able to awaken affinities which are asleep at this temperature by their mere presence and not by their own affinity.
