Enzymes are biological catalysts that depend on water to reach their substrates and to bind to them. There is no enzyme activity without water. In addition, enzymes depend on adequate pH intervals to do their job, and this pH is a result of the release of hydrogen cations (H?) and hydroxyl anions (OH?) by the acids and bases in water solutions.
