The oscillatory characteristics of the catalyzed and uncatalyzed bromate oscillators are altered by gamma irradiation. These alterations could arise due to additional reactions to be included in the reaction scheme involving the species like H., OH., and HO2. generated as a result of gamma irradiation.
