We present results of a study of the dynamics of the formation of inhomogeneous
phases of the chiral transition transition in QCD. The possibility of the formation
of a spatially modulated chiral condensate in the final stages of a heavy-ion
collision is investigated assuming a Ginzburg-Landau-Langevin time evolution,
using model-motivated free energy functionals. Time scales for the formation of
inhomogeneous condensates are contrasted with the expansion rate of the medium,
modelled by one-dimensional Bjorken flow.
