    • Abstract


      Chaotic oscillations in redox potential have been observed in thiophenol-KIO3-H2SO4 system in batch reactors. These occur in a concentration and temperature range. Bifurcation from a stable regime to a chaotic regime occurs in a straight way in the entire concentration and temperature range. Oscillations were also studied in continuously stirred tank reactors. These oscillations are deterministic chaos. It is tentatively suggested that chaos in the system is due to a time delay caused by a large number of intermediates.
