Abstract : Both theoretical and experimental work have been reported on instabilities in purely dissipative bulk systems in which occur chemical reactions and transport processes such as diffusion. The authors investigate instabilities and related phenomena in systems in which certain reactions are localized to electrodes, membranes or other surfaces and the local sites are immersed in a bulk medium with transport processes and additional reactions. Gradients within the local sites are neglected and for simplicity membranes are assumed not to inhibit transport.
