Abstract : Chemiluminescence is discussed with primary reference to the C2O2Cl2- H2O2-fluorescent acceptor chemiluminescent reaction, chemiluminescent decompostition of anthracene photoperoxides, synthetic approaches to new potentially chemiluminescent compounds, and energy transfer in chemiluminescent systems. Five new chemiluminescent reactions related to peroxyoxalic acid decompostions are reported. A stable, solid chemiluminescent composition based on oxalic acid is described. Emitting species in peroxyoxalic acid chemiluminescence were shown to be the singlet excited state of the fluorescent acceptor present in the system. Preliminary energy transfer studies in the peroxyoxalic acid system are described.
