Abstract (English)

“Chemical” or “silicate gardens” are a well known example for the spontaneous formation of a complex and structured system from ordinary educts. Simply by addition of soluble metal salt crystals to alkaline silica sols, dissolution of the metal salt and subsequent solidification initiate a self-organization process, which not only produces two separated compartments with drastically different ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

„Chemische Gärten“, auch verbreitet unter dem Begriff „Silikatgärten“, sind ein wohlbekanntes Beispiel für die spontane Entstehung komplexer und strukturierter Systeme aus einfachen, abiotischen und anorganischen Ausgangsstoffen. Dabei wird durch simple Zugabe von Kristallen wasserlöslicher, mehrwertiger Metallsalze zu alkalischen Silikatlösungen ein Selbstorganisationsprozess in Gang gesetzt, ...
