Fourth International Symposium
Engineering of Chemical Complexity
Berlin, June 7-9, 2006

Program and Organization: G. Ertl, A. S. Mikhailov, H. H. Rotermund

The aim of this meeting is to review current perspectives for design, manipulation and efficient control of self-organizing complex chemical systems, ranging from biotechnology and reactive nanostructures to macroscopic pattern formation in chemical reactors. Both experimental studies of such phenomena and their mathematical modeling will be discussed. Possible technological applications of self-organization phenomena shall be considered.

    Abstract:
    Theoretical stochastic model, describing onset of localized pitting corrosion on stainless steel, is constructed and numerically investigated. The model interpretes the observed sudden corrosion onset as a nonequilibrium critical phenomenon, leading to an effective autocatalytic explosion in the number of active corrosion pits on the metal surface. The model also predicts the existence of propagating fronts and the nucleaation phenomena characteristic to nonequilibrium transitions in bistable active media. The experiments, performed in the laboratory of H. H. Rotermund in the Fritz Haber Institute, have confirmed these theoretical predictions.
