We analyse the transient spatio-temporal chaos that we observe in the Belousov±Zhabotinsky reaction performed in a closed unstirred batch reactor by recurrence quanti®cation analysis (RQA). We characterize the chaotic transient by measuring the Lyapunov exponent and the Kaplan±Yorke dimension. The latter shows the fractality of the attractor. The importance of the coupling between hydrodynamics and kinetics for the onset of chaos is also shown.
