Abstract

A new simple reaction - diffusion system is presented focusing on pattern formation phenomena as consecutive precipitation fronts and distortion of the precipitation front. The chemical system investigated here is based on the amphoteric property of aluminum hydroxide and exhibits two unique phenomena. Both the existence of consecutive precipitation fronts and distortion are reported for the first time. The precipitation patterns could be controlled by the pH field, and the distortion of the precipitation front can be practical for microtechnological applications of reaction - diffusion systems.
