Nucleation and growth: modeling the NH3 - HCL reaction
One of the trademarks of a Liesegang ring system is the exhibition of a moving reaction front to form a periodic precipitation pattern. This phenomenon has been studied by both chemists and mathematicians. The periodic patterns produced have developed an interest from a mathematical perspective, while the theory and mechanism behind these patterns has created interest from a chemist's point of view. Many mathematical models have been proposed, and much interest has been invested in studying the mechanism behind these Liesegang ring systems. In particular, we will consider the NH3-HCl system, ...
