We report numerical evidence of a new type of wide-ranging organization of mixed-mode oscillations (MMOs) in a model of the peroxidase−oxidase reaction, in the control parameter plane defined by the supply of the reactant NADH and the pH of the medium. In classic MMOs, the intervals of distinct periodic oscillations are always separated from each other by windows of chaos. In contrast, in the new unfolding, such windows of chaos do not exist. Chaos-mediated and nonchaos-mediated MMO phases are separated by a continuous transition boundary in the control parameter plane. In addition, for low pH values, we find an exceptionally wide and intricate mosaic of MMO phases that is described by a detailed phase diagram.
