A simple and rapid analytical method for determining 1-naphthylamine was proposed by perturbation with different amounts of 1-naphthylamine on the classical Belousov-Zhabotinskii (B-Z) oscillating chemical system. The results show that the changes both in oscillating period and amplitude were linearly proportional to the logarithm of the concentration of 1-naphthylamine (logC) very well ranging from 7.08x10(-5) to 7.08x10(-6) molL(-1) and 7.08x10(-5) to 1.0x10(-6) molL(-1), with the corresponding regression coefficient are 0.9957 and 0.9922, respectively. For the later, a lower detection limit of 5.64x10(-9) molL(-1) was obtained. Influence of injection point, temperature and reactant variables on this oscillating system was also investigated in detailed. The results obtained were compared with other determination methods. A possible reaction mechanism was interpreted by using bromide ion selective electrode to inspect the concentration change of Br(-) ion in the oscillating process.
