(Broken) gradient-dynamics description of reactive thin liquid films — •Florian Voß, Fenna Stegemerten, and Uwe Thiele — Institut für Theoretische Physik, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Wilhelm-Klemm-Str. 9, 48149 Münster, Germany

After reviewing the gradient dynamics formulation of chemical reactions, applied e.g. in [1] to reacting phase-separating systems, we apply the concept to thin liquid films and shallow drops that are either covered by reactive surfactants [2] or react with the solid substrate [3]. Next we discuss how the breaking of the variational form by imposed fluxes results in intricate spatio-temporal dynamics of the film/drop and reactant density profiles. As an example we consider a simple model for oscillatory behaviour in droplets of slime mould.
