Reactions, in which the critical phenomena are found out in homogeneous isothermal conditions, in general concern to organic substrates oxidation processes by strong oxidants, catalyzed by metals ions of variable valency. Participants of our team discovered the critical phenomena in typical reactions of the organometallic catalysis by metals complexes in which no substrates destruction, but synthesis of complex molecules occurs. So, in acetylene carbalkoxylation reaction in the system PdBr2 – KBr – HBr – butanol-1 – dimethylsulphoxide, in alkynes oxidative carbonylation reaction in the system PdI2 - KI – MeOH [2, 3], and in reaction of maleic anhydride synthesis from acetylene and CO the various nonlinear phenomena was discovered. The analysis of the information about findings allow us to formulate the features of homogeneous catalytic reactions mechanisms which can become the reason of nontrivial dynamic behaviour: 1) Presence of nonlinear stages in the process mechanism (reaction between intermediates, presence of one or more catalysts); 2) Participation of active particles formation and destruction stages, i.e. chain mechanisms of the catalytic process; 3) Presence in the mechanism schema the positive (autocatalysis) and negative (autoinhibition) feedbacks.
