What do we call something that RETARDS the rate of reaction?

Hmmm, do you mean an #"inhibitory catalyst?"#


As we know a catalyst commonly increases the rate of reaction (with respect to forward and reverse rates) such that equilibrium is reached quickly.

Presumably an #"inhibitory catalyst"# RETARDS the rate of reaction, so that the point of equilibrium is delayed.
