Kinetics and simulations of the malonic acid-bromine reaction

In this subsystem of the classical Belousov-Zhabotinskii oscillatory reaction the minimal set of reactions that still quantitatively reproduces the experimental behavior was suggested and analyzed by numerical simulations. We conclude that the reaction pathway via HOBr plays no role in the bromination of malonic acid.
