The {Belousov-Zhabotinsky} {(BZ)} reaction is the best known example of far from equilibrium self-organizing chemical reaction.

Abstract

The {Belousov-Zhabotinsky} {(BZ)} reaction is the best known example of far from equilibrium self-organizing chemical reaction. Among the many dynamical behaviors that this reaction can exhibit, spatio-temporal chaos attracted particular interest, both for the ferroin and cerium catalyzed systems. In recent years transient chaos was found in the cerium catalyzed {BZ} reaction, when conducted in batch and unstirred reactors. It was established that the chaotic oscillations, originated by the coupling among chemical kinetics and transport phenomena, appeared and disappeared following a {Ruelle-Takens-Newhouse} scenario. In this Letter, we show results about the ferroin catalyzed system conducted in batch and unstirred reactors. An aperiodic transient regime was detected and we show that this is a genuine manifestation of spatio-temporal chaos.
