Intermittent Chaos in the Bray–Liebhafsky Oscillator. Dependence of Dynamic States on the Iodate Concentration
Chaotic dynamic states with intermittent oscillations were generated in a Bray–Liebhafsky (BL) oscillatory reaction in an isothermal open reactor i.e., in the continuously-fed well-stirred tank reactor (CSTR) when the inflow concentration of potassium iodate was the control parameter. They are found between periodic oscillations obtained when [KIO3]0 < 3.00 × 10–2 M and stable steady states when [KIO3]0 > 4.10 × 10–2 M. It was shown that the most chaotic states obtained experimentally somewhere in the middle of this region are in high correlation with results obtained by means of largest Lyapunov exponents and phenomenological analysis based on the quantitative characteristics of intermittent oscillations.
