Abstract : In a system and method for enhancing chemical reactions, a reactant is brought in contact with a stable, non-soluble, porous, electronically non-conductive solid (reaction enhancer) in a fluidic medium to form a reaction mixture of low ionic strength. The reaction mixture so formed is then subjected to an electrifying force thereby enhancing the chemical reaction. Reaction products are then collected. jg
