The temporal dynamics of the Bray-Liebhafsky reaction (iodate-based catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide in an acidic aqueous solution) was experimentally characterized in a continuous stirred tank reactor by independently varying the temperature and the mixed inflow hydrogen peroxide concentration. When the temperature was the bifurcation parameter, the emergence/disappearance of oscillatory behavior via a supercritical Andronov-Hopf bifurcation was observed for different mixed inflow hydrogen peroxide concentrations. An increase in the mixed inflow hydrogen-peroxide concentration resulted in a shift of the bifurcation point towards higher values of temperature, but did not alter the bifurcation type.
