Abstract: In this thesis, the coupling interactions of the salt-water oscillator and liquid membrane oscillator have been investigated in order to increase the potentials and create a reversible chemical oscillator. The results indicate that:(1) the increase of the potentials may be attributed to the resonance of the coupling; (2) a reversible oscillator was formed by the coupling of the salt-water oscillator and liquid membrane oscillator. And a possible mechanism for the coupling and reversible oscillation was presented: a coordination compound was produced in the diffusion process, which dissolves in the oil phase but not in the water phase. Furthermore, when electrified, the coordination compound dissociates and the reversible oscillation takes place. So the application of the salt-water oscillator, especially in the second battery, may be extended.
