On our way to producing all-polymeric self-oscillatory systems, we have expanded the horizons of oscillatory palladium-catalysed oxidative carbonylation reactions by searching for alternative substrates, solvents and even catalysts. In this paper, we demonstrate that pH oscillations of a similar pattern occur both in methanol and ethanol solutions, when using mono- and dialkyne-functionalysed benzenes (phenylacetylene and diethynylbenzene, respectively) and when a non-leaching polyacrylate-palladium catalyst is used. The resulting oscillations are highly regular and can be sustained for a long time, suggesting that carbonylation reactions have strong potential for the discovery and development of new oscillatory chemical systems.
