Abstract / Full Text

Convective instability of K4[Fe(CN)6] + K3[Fe(CN)6] solution in an electrochemical cell with plane horizontal electrodes is analyzed theoretically. A diagram for nonequilibrium phase transitions is constructed. Conditions for the rise of a Rayleigh-Benard instability and the oscillatory convective instability are determined.
