Induced catalyst: When a chemical reaction increases the rate of another chemical reaction, it is called induced catalysis. 


Sodium arsenite solution is not oxidised by air. but when air is passed through a mixture of the solution of sodium arsenite and sodium sulphite, simultaneous oxidation of both takes place. Thus the oxidation of sodium arsenite is induced by oxidation of sodium sulphite.
