The question of the termination of a periodic spatial structure of Turing type in a growing system is addressed in a chemical engineering perspective and a biomimetic approach. The effects of the dynamical parameters on the stability and the wavelength of the structure are analytically studied and used to propose experimental conditions for which a Turing pattern stops by itself with a decreasing wavelength. The proposed mechanism is successfully checked by the numerical integration of the…

Design and Control of Self-organizing Chemical Systems

When an architect designs a building, he develops individual blocks and then combines them into a desired structure. In a similar manner a chemical engineer works when a chemical factory is designed:

Chemistry in Motion

Chemistry impacts myriad facets of the transportation industry from the fuels that are needed to power vehicles to the materials from which the vehicles are designed. Energy, the environment and
