    • Abstract


      The generation to which Boris Pavlovich Belousov (1893–1976) belonged has almost disappeared. The archives hold only a few documents about his life and basically secret research. This article is a brief biography of Belousov and attempts to reconstruct what lay behind his famous discovery of the oscillatory homogeneous chemical reaction named after him.
