Kinetic scheme for a ferroin-catalyzed belousov-zhabotinskii reaction with compound-period transient states
- 52 Downloads
A kinetic scheme is proposed for a Belousov-Zhabotinskii reaction catalyzed by ferroin, which describes compound-period transient oscillations in a closed reactor with vigorous mixing. The scheme consists of 29 reactions for 13 compounds and gives a satisfactory description of the form and period of the oscillations as actually observed, as well as the threshold values for oscillation in terms of the initial bromate concentration and the lower threshold for the ferroin concentration. The bifurcation diagram has been drawn up with coordinates consisting of the initial bromate and ferroin concentrations on the basis of a simulation that gives a qualitative description of the actual oscillatory states.
