Over the past two decades the oscillatory nature of the PdI2-catalysed oxidative carbonylation of phenylacetylene has been experimentally studied and reproducible oscillations in pH were reported. Oscillatory behaviour has been reported over the temperature range 0-40 °C under batch or semi-batch conditions. Recently, oscillatory palladium-catalysed carbonylation has been achieved using mono alkyne-terminated poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether at 20 °C demonstrating that alkyne-terminated macromolecules are also suitable substrates. In this work, studies of both oscillatory systems (phenylacetylene and mono alkyne-terminated poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether) conducted in a 1 litre automated reactor system are reported.
