Since the pioneering work of Alan Turing on “The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis”, many examples of pattern formation in nature have been attributed to the combination of autocatalytic chemical reaction and mass transport processes. In this talk I will revisit Turing’s mechanism for pattern formation and discuss several other instabilities that give rise to chemical self-organisation including differential diffusion in an enzyme catalysed reaction and flow distributed oscillations (FDO) in a packed bed and a Taylor vortex flow reactor.
