Abstract: The kinetics of reduction of the Mn(III) ions by the ethyl ester of 3-oxobutanoic acid as well as the Belousov—Zhabotinskii reaction with this ester in the presence of Mn(II)—Mn(III) has been studied. The dependence of duration time of oscillations on the concentration of substrate is especially remarkable. It exhibits a distinct maximum at the concentration ratio of bromates to substrate q = 2.0. The results are discussed from the view-point of a simplified reaction model, the so-called oregonator. At values q>2.0 the oscillations vanish through a stage of chaotic behaviour while the oscillations disappear in the form of regular damped oscillations at q ≤2.0.
