HyperText Chemiluminescence Sites of Interest
An ozone-induced chemiluminescence detector for fast determination of isoprene
is at Hills-Scientific.
Isoprene is a naturally emitted hydrocarbon produced by leafy plants
and plays an important role in the concentration of other biospherically
important components such as ozone, carbon monoxide, and organic peroxides.
Gas phase determination of NOx is described here.
This site shows images of the instrument, calibration and response
curves, bibliographic references, and figures of merit/specifications.
Some interesting suggestions about how to use chemiluminescence commercial
products involving peroxyoxylate chemiluminescence compounds are available
at Omniglow's commercial web site.
The frequently asked question section here is especially good.
And a simple description of the way light sticks work is here.
page, and this author also has the lightstick
emission (CL) spectra of different colored light sticks. Sorry
I can't get reagents to you for this reaction.

those interested in a chemiluminescence demonstration, here is a site describing
the luminol/hydrogen peroxide reaction (in an Erlenmeyer flask) in proportions
for a class demonstration. Don't forget to use safety precautions!
This person and his research group are probably more responsible than
any other for the understanding of the kinetics of the peroxyoxalate chemiluminescent
publications and chemiluminescence methods are described here.
Chemiluminescence in immunoassays
are discussed here.
