Complex breakup behavior in the revival wave has been observed in the Belousov-Zhabotinsky(BZ) reaction system containing 1,4-cyclohexanedione (1,4-CHD) in the dish divided into two compartments with a sliding window. A same reaction mixture is poured into the two compartments individually with time difference. Wave propagation exhibited different behavior in the revival wave of the reaction system. This was largely dependent on the progress time prior to the pouring into each compartment and on the gap between the times of pouring into the two compartments. The revival wave in the reaction system is induced spontaneously as a new wave train with a long time lag after the disappearance of the initially induced wave. A thoroughgoing study of the chaotic breakup of propagating chemical wave train was to be possible since the revival wave has a longer wavelength, clearer wave-train patterns, and longer duration period.
