Membrane diffusion in a coupled reactor system can cause complex behaviour such as oscillations, period doubling and chaos. Here we study a simple model suggested by Deng-Harrison in 1969. The bifurcation diagram is obtained. We find good agreement with Figure 10 page 76 of the paper by Lengyel and Epstein.
