Abstract: The effects of stirring on the oscillations of the ferrion-catalyzed and ceriumcatalyzed B-Z reactions are investigated in the stirred batch reactor. The experimental results show that the oscillatory behavours (period, amplitude etc.) are sensitive to the rate of stirring even in the nitrogen atmosphere and the stirring effects are different for ferrion-catalyzed and cerium-catalyzed reactions. We believe that such stirring effects reflect the interference between chemical reactions and transport processes. The inert salt which does not take part in the reaction may also effect the oscillations.
