    is it so hard to understand that I am talking about the catalytic converter or however else you want to call it?

    because it's a redox reaction, just like in cells

    Well, do you understand that a catalyst is just one component of the catalytic converter? :)

    ok, but you have to admit that it's the most important part and the functional part

    That doesn't necessarily mean that you'll be able to get electricity from it.
