Halting the Briggs-Rauscher Oscillating Reaction  
The Briggs-Rauscher reaction is demonstrated in three different ways. Catalase from a liver extract decomposes the hydrogen peroxide in an Briggs-Rauscher reaction, stopping the oscillations.

Kinetics : CatalyticConverters (4 Variations)
The following table illustrates the changes in emissions requirements for automobiles:
Pollutant1970 Emissions1990 EmissionsCA ultra-low emissions
CxHy1.5 g/mile0.25 g/mile0.04 g/mile
CO15 g/mile3.4 g/mile1.7 g/mile
NOx3.1 g/mile0.4 g/mile0.2 g/mile
Catalytic converters are used in automobiles to convert pollutants in engine emissions to benign products. Catalytic converters in today's automobiles are made of a porous ceramic brick that has been coated with catalysts, additives, stabilizers, and support materials. Corning has developed bricks that have very thin-walled channels with 600 channels per square inch. Which of the following research goals did they target?

Concerning "A Reaction That Takes Place in Beakers but Not in Conical Flasks: A Catalysis-Related Demonstration"  Colin White
Although I respect the right of Espenson to object to my suggestion of a useful teaching aid, I fundamentally disagree with the argument put forward. A good teacher uses a variety of teaching styles and aids to stimulate and educate students, including, if appropriate, trickery or showmanship.

Concerning "A Reaction That Takes Place in Beakers but Not in Conical Flasks: A Catalysis-Related Demonstration"  James Espenson
I find it distressing to encounter a lecture demonstration that seeks to make a valid scientific point through deception. I refer to the Tested Demonstration, A Reaction That Takes Place in Beakers but Not in Conical Flasks: A Catalysis-Related Demonstration.
Espenson, James. J. Chem. Educ. 2005, 82, 527.
