Electromagnetic vacuum fields are omnipresent in our universe, inducing many events such as spontaneous emission, Lamb shift, and Van der Waals forces. As demonstrated here, a chemical reaction can be influenced by strongly coupling the energy landscape governing the reaction pathway to vacuum fields in an optical cavity (see picture; MC=merocyanine).
