Micro Droplets as Teaction Vessels

Caption: A complex oscillating reaction running in micro droplets as reaction vessels shows surprising variety in terms of period, amplitude and phase. With a fluorescent dye integrated into one of the reaction steps, the team of scientists from Technische Universitaet Muenchen and the University of California (Pasadena and Riverside) were able to investigate the reactions.
