The oscillatory modes of oxidative carbonylation reaction of two new substrates—2-methyl-3-butyn-2-ol and 2-propyn-1-ol in homogeneous system PdI2-KI-CO-O2-CH3OH are found. Borders of oscillatory areas are drawn, the basic products of reaction are identified, and probable processes routes are offered.
