The polymer chain with Fe(phen)3-catalyzed was demonstrated to occur self-oscillation phenomenon in BZ reaction system. The self-oscillation polymer composed of N-isopropylacrylamide and Fe(phen)3 catalyst moiety, which were synthesized by radical polymerization. It was found that the self-oscillation parameters (induction period, Ti, oscillation period, Tp and amplitude) could be regulated by subtle changes of temperature. It can be well explained by the FKN mechanism.
