This paper proposes an experimental model of artificial reaction-diffusion systems, which provides a foundation for constructing future massively parallel molecular computers. The key idea is to control redox-active molecules in solution by an array of integrated microelectrodes and to realize artificially programmable reaction-diffusion dynamics in a very small amount of solution.
