The control of self-organized structures such as Turing patterns is a challenge for chemical engineers. We propose a reaction-diffusion model that includes the reactive role of the solvent and admits Turing patterns of adaptable wavelength. Changing the concentration of the solute is sufficient to tune the wavelength. Particles dynamics simulations are successfully performed, illustrating wavelength control down to the submicrometric scale.
