Chemical systems display a wide range of behaviors, including periodic and chaotic oscillations. The Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction, the most studied chemical reaction giving chaos, will be used to present several routes to chaos. Routes to chaos presented will include the period doubling cascade, the universal sequence, the periodic-chaotic sequence, and motion on a torus.
