Abstract: In this work we present results about the deuterium isotope effect on the globalkinetics of a Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction in batch conditions. A nonlinear dependenceof the Induction Period upon the percentage of deuterated reactants was found. The isotopiceffect on the bromination reaction of malonic acid was evaluated.
Keywords: Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction; Isotopic effect; Induction Period; Enolization; Bromination reaction.
