Abstract

In this work, we report a new chemiluminescence system using bis-(2,4,6-trichlorophenyl) oxalate (TCPO) with hydrogen peroxide and luminol as fluorophore. The intense chemiluminescence reaction here described was fully investigated and it was determined that this fluorescent system has two strong light emissions at 440 and 490 nm, respectively. This new, user friendly, intense and striking light emission chemiluminescence system can be used as a very usefull tool for the design and construction of fluorescencent chemical sensors.
