The alcohol dehydrogenase reaction on active charcoals has been studied. It is shown that the reaction rate on active charcoals decreases in comparison with usual conditions but the reaction being carried out for a longer period of time, the equilibrium shifts towards the NADH formation, which makes the NADH yield several times higher. A conclusion is made on the possibility of charcoals to influence the enzymic reactions in a living organism.
