The four basic manners through which the catalyst accelerates the organic chemical reaction have been summarized, including setting up electron flow channel, changing electron flow property, improving electron flow ability and stabilizing electronic flow. The aim of the paper is to reveal the essence of catalytic action of catalyst in organic chemical reactions and help students better understand organic chemical reactions.

Key words: Electron flow, Catalyst, Organic chemical reactions
