Abstract: We report experimental evidence of explosive synchronization in coupled chemo-mechanical systems, namely in mercury beating-heart (MBH) oscillators. Connecting four MBH oscillators in a star network configuration and setting natural frequencies of each oscillator in proportion to the number of its links, a gradual increase of the coupling strength results in an abrupt and irreversible (first-order-like) transition from the system's unordered to ordered phase. On its turn, such a transition indicates the emergence of a bistable regime wherein coexisting states can be experimentally revealed. Finally, we prove how such a regime allows an experimental implementation of magneticlike states of synchronization, by the use of an external signal.
