Model G, the earliest reaction-diffusion
system proposed to support the existence of solitons, is shown
to do so under distant steady-state boundary conditions. Subatomic
particle physics phenomenology, including multi-particle bonding,
movement in concentration gradients, and a particle structure
matching Kelly's charge distribution model of the nucleon, are
observed. Lastly, it is shown how a three-variable reversible
Brusselator, a close relative of Model G, can also support solitons.
