Coherent chemistry, the chemistry of periodical oscillatory processes, is well established in physical chemistry, chemical physics, and biological chemistry, says Sucharev (Chelyabinsk State U., Russia), but not in traditional non-organic chemistry and related branches, such as colloid chemistry. He suspects that much important phenomena is being overlooked during catalysis or adsorption for that reason.
