Abstract: Bromide ions are released by the effect of oxygen more rapidly in the reaction of the Mn3+ ions with a mixture of malonic acid (MA) and bromoma- lonic acid (BrMA) of low summary concentration, but the overall released quantity is smaller. At a high summary concentration of MA and BrMA the quantity of released Br- ions in the presence of oxygen is substantially greater. To follow the concentration of the Br- ions during oscillations the Polarogra­ phie method with Pt-electrode may be used. Oxygen enhances the rate of Mn3+ consumption in the reaction with MA of a low concentration, but reduces it at a high concentration of MA. In addition, the oxygen consumption increases with MA concentration. A new mechanism has been proposed for the influence of oxygen on the oxidation of MA by Mn3+ Its essence is an acceleration of Mn3+ consumption by the reaction with glyoxylic acid at low MA concentration  and regeneration of Mn3+ by oxidation of Mn2+ with hydroperoxide (MAOOH) at high MA concentration.
