Abstract

In the Belousov-Zhabotinsky systems, where the catalytic oxidative bromination of malonic acid [MA] takes place with bromate, oscillations start only after a preoscillatory period. Intermediates formed during this part of the reaction initiate the transition from the non-oscillatory to the oscillatory state of the system.
