We report a systematic study of pattern formation in a thin fluid layer driven by a simple chemical reaction. The hydrodynamic instability arises due to the increase of fluid density in the subsurface layer caused by the O2 oxidation of glucose to gluconic acid with the methylene blue as a catalyst. We also report independent measurements of the kinetics of the reaction and of the increase in density which gives rise to the instability.
