    • Brinicles as a case of inverse chemical gardens 

      Cartwright, J.H.E.; Escribano, B.; González, D.L.; Sainz-Díaz, C.I.; Tuval, I. (2013-12-31)
      Brinicles are hollow tubes of ice from centimeters to meters in length that form under floating sea ice in the polar oceans when dense, cold brine drains downward from sea ice to seawater close to its freezing point. When ...
    • Chemical-garden formation, morphology, and composition. I. Effect of the nature of the cations 

      Cartwright, J.H.E.; Escribano, B.; Sainz-Díaz, C.I. (2011-12-31)
      We have grown chemical gardens in different sodium silicate solutions from several metal-ion salts-calcium chloride, manganese chloride, cobalt chloride, and nickel sulfate-with cations from period 4 of the periodic table. ...
    • Chemical-garden formation, morphology, and composition. II. Chemical gardens in microgravity 

      Cartwright, J.H.E.; Escribano, B.; Sainz-Díaz, C.I.; Stodieck, L.S. (2011-12-31)
      We studied the growth of metal-ion silicate chemical gardens under Earth gravity (1 g) and microgravity (μg) conditions. Identical sets of reaction chambers from an automated system (the Silicate Garden Habitat or SGHab) ...
    • Crystal growth as an excitable medium 

      Cartwright, J.H.E.; Checa, A.G.; Escribano, B.; Sainz-Díaz, C.I. (2012-12-31)
      Crystal growth has been widely studied for many years, and, since the pioneering work of Burton, Cabrera and Frank, spirals and target patterns on the crystal surface have been understood as forms of tangential crystal ...
    • From chemical gardens to chemobrionics 

      Barge, L.M.; Cardoso, S.S.S.; Cartwright, J.H.E.; Cooper, G.J.T.; Cronin, L.; de Wit, A.; Doloboff, I.J.; Escribano, B.; Goldstein, R.E.; Haudin, F.; Jones, D.E.H.; Mackay, A.L.; Maselko, J.; Pagano, J.J.; Pantaleone, J.; Russell, M.J.; Sainz-Díaz, C.I.; Steinbock, O.; Stone, D.A.; Tanimoto, Y.; Thomas, N. (2015-12-31)
      Chemical gardens in laboratory chemistries ranging from silicates to polyoxometalates, in applications ranging from corrosion products to the hydration of Portland cement, and in natural settings ranging from hydrothermal ...
    • Runaway electrification of friable self-replicating granular matter 

      Cartwright, J.H.E.; Escribano, B.; Grothe, H.; Piro, O.; Sainz-Díaz, C.I.; Tuval, I. (2013-12-31)
      We establish that the nonlinear dynamics of collisions between particles favors the charging of an insulating, friable, self-replicating granular material that undergoes nucleation, growth, and fission processes; we ...
