    A similar conclusion was reached by J.C. Micheau (private communication) for the photochemical case, after finding additional systems to those reported by us.Google Scholar

    We are aware only of Orban's speculation [J. Am. Chem. Soc. 102, 4311 (1980)] regarding the role of oxygen diffusion in the formation of the stationary spatial structures in the Belousov-Zhabotinskii reaction.Google Scholar
